THR is reporting that director Brad Peyton is set to follow up the upcoming video game movie adaptation Rampage by helming the sci-fi mystery The Epoch Index for 20th Century Fox.
An adaptation of Christian Cantrell’s 2010 novella, The Epoch Index “centers on CIA analyst Quinn Mitchell as she aims to redeem herself after personal and professional setbacks. Her ticket to redemption may be solving a strange string of assassinations in which the victims are found with three-digit numbers on their flesh. But as she tracks the killer throughout the world, their paths cross in unexpected ways.”
Peyton is also on board to produce the film through his ASAP Entertainment banner, while Matt Reeves (War for the Planet of the Apes) will produce through his company 6th & Idaho. The script has been penned by Justin Rhodes (Terminator 6).
Peyton’s latest film Rampage reteams him with Journey 2: The Mysterious Island and San Andreas star Dwayne Johnson, and is set to open in cinemas on April 13th.
