Ridley Scott has signed on to produce Mind MGMT for 20th Century Fox. The studio picked up the rights to the Dark Horse comic Book by Matt Kindt, and is on the hunt for a writer.
The book tells the story of a government agency consisting of psychic spies and their greatest asset, Henry Lime. After he suffers a breakdown and loses control of his abilities, causing the populace of a town to kill one another, he goes on the run. Several years later, a true-crime author named Meru, who was part of a flight where everyone mysteriously developed amnesia, is saved by Lime and begins to investigate the agency, uncovering her own secret connection to it.
The book was first published last May, and is written and illustrated by Kindt, whose 3 Story: The Secret History of the Giant Man is in development at Warner Bros.
