Straczynski Adapts “Shattered Union”

J. Michael Straczynski (“Changeling,” “Ninja Assassin”) will adapt the 2005 war strategy video game “Shattered Union” into a feature film for Disney Pictures says Variety.

Set against the backdrop of a new civil war after Washington D.C. is wiped out in a nuclear blast, the various states have seceded into six warring groups and players get to play one of them or a European peacekeeping unit sent to reunify America.

Jerry Bruckheimer is set to produce. Straczynski also has Vietnam War drama “They Marched Into Sunlight” in pre-production at Universal.
