WB, Lin join Christensen’s ‘Coalition’

Studio fast-tracking singer's sci-fi thriller

Warner Bros. has snapped up Shawn Christensen’s sci-fi thriller “Karma Coalition” for Dan Lin to produce.

Preemptive deal is pegged at high-six against mid-seven figures.

Christensen, who is the lead singer of the indie rock band stellastarr*, penned the screenplay while working on the Gotham-based group’s upcoming third album.

“Karma Coalition” centers on a falsely accused fugitive who embarks on a quest to uncover the truth behind his wife’s death before the world comes to an end.

WB is fast-tracking the pic.

Stephen Gilchrist, who brought the project into WB-based Lin Pictures, will co-produce.

Lin is producing a number of pics for the studio, including superhero film “Justice League,” the Image Shadowline comicbook series “Hiding in Time” and the Guy Ritchie-helmed “Sherlock Holmes.” He is also exec producing “Terminator Salvation” and the Robert Rodriguez-directed “Shorts.”

Though “Karma Coalition” is a solo project, Christensen typically works with writing partner Jason Dolan. The pair penned the script “Sidney Hall,” which was bought by Scott Free out of its discretionary fund. Michael Costigan is producing, with Joe Russo directing.
