Classic Sci-Fi Story Goes Universal

by | March 22, 2006 | Comments

Alfred Bester’s classic sci-fi novel "The Stars My Destination" has been optioned for the movie treatment by Universal Pictures and producers Lorenzo Di Bonaventura and Raymond Wagner.

Says Variety: "Universal Pictures has acquired screen rights to "The Stars My Destination," a 1955 Alfred Bester novel that’s considered a seminal sci-fi work. Lorenzo Di Bonaventura is producing with Raymond Wagner.

Protag is the sole survivor of a wrecked spaceship that drifts through deep space. When a passing vessel ignores his distress signal, he becomes obsessed with revenge and ultimately uncovers a secret destined to change the course of history."

Sounds like a movie I’d like to see … after I track the book down.
