This just in: Tobey Maguire enjoys making movies based on comics.

The star of the Spider-Man trilogy — and producer of a forthcoming live-action Robotech adaptation — has joined forces with Neal Moritz to assemble a film version of Afterburn, Scott Chitwood/Paul Ens-written, Wayne Nichols-drawn Red 5 Comics title that kicked off in January. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Maguire and Moritz will co-produce, and the story outline looks a little something like this:

The book…is a sci-fi adventure set against the backdrop of a postapocalyptic Earth, whose Eastern Hemisphere was destroyed by a massive solar flare, leaving what life remains mutated from radiation and fallout. The story revolves around a group of treasure hunters who for the right price extract such objects as the Mona Lisa, the Rosetta Stone and the Crown Jewels while facing rival hunters, mutants and pirates along the way.

The Reporter mentions that Afterburn still needs a screenwriter. Time to start sending in those treatments, everyone!
