Mark Heyman Writing Sci-Fi 'Age of Rage' for Director Marc Webb
We know that director Marc Webb (seen above) is currently out directing Spider-Man for Sony, but that also means he's got some big projects lined up. Fox Searchlight has another one in the works called Age of Rage, a "sophisticated sci-fi project" that Marc Webb is attached to direct. Heat Vision reports that Mark Heyman, an executive from Darren Aronofsky's Protozoa Pictures who help co-write Black Swan, is now attached to write the screenplay. He's already set to write Machine Man for Aronofsky as well and is known for his expertise in "elevated genre," as this kind of project is referred to. So what is Age of Rage all about?
Age of Rage is set in a post-apocalyptic society where all the adults have died and a group of teens sets about trying to establish a new society. So it kind of sounds like a mix between Logan's Run and something like Road Warrior (maybe?), but is obviously much more complex and unique in its own way. Heat Vision says the script is actually based on Marc Webb's idea, which is why he's still attached, but there's no word yet (since he's very busy) whether he'll direct this or something else next after finishing Spider-Man. I'm a huge sci-fi fan and I'm very curious to see what kind of story they've come up with. Looking forward to this!
