Twentieth Century Fox has optioned feature rights to the fantasy comicbook series “Battle Chasers,” with Gil Netter attached to produce. Stuart Hazeldine is negotiating to adapt the screenplay.

Created by Joe Madureira and published by DC Comics, “Battle Chasers” is set on a deadly alien world where humans battle for wealth and four very different superpowered warriors are forced to form an alliance to save their land from a corrupt king.

Fox production president Hutch Parker will supervise development with VP Alex Young. Ken Levin and Jason Netter are executive producers.

Gil Netter, whose “Phone Booth” will be released this Friday, also produced upcoming pic “The Boss’ Daughter” (aka “The Guest”) for Dimension Films and “Dude, Where’s My Car?” for Fox. He is currently producing the sequel to the latter film.

Hazeldine, who’s repped by WMA and Immortal Entertainment, wrote “Riverworld,” which was produced by Alex Proyas for Alliance Atlantis and premiered on the Sci Fi Channel on March 22.

He also penned “The Tenth Victim,” which will be produced through Myriad Pictures with Pressman Films. Dominic Sena is attached to direct, and the script is currently out to actors, with hopes of starting production later this year in Berlin.
