Platinum, Valhalla launch ‘Final Orbit’

Duo to bring thriller comicbook to bigscreen

Platinum Studios has teamed with Valhalla Motion Pictures to turn the thriller comicbook “Final Orbit” into a feature film. Russell Gewirtz (“Inside Man”) will write the script.

Valhalla chair Gale Anne Hurd and Platinum Studios chairman-CEO Scott Mitchell Rosenberg will produce.

“Final Orbit,” which will be published by Platinum Studios Comics early next year, tells the story of a lottery that gives thrill-seekers a chance to vacation aboard a newly completed International Space Station. But the trips turns nightmarish after the station is damaged, trapping tourists in a crippled module with no trained astronauts to help them.

Randy Greenberg will exec produce and Valhalla’s Gary Ventimiglia will co-produce.

Gewirtz’s most recent script credit is Al Pacino-Robert De Niro starrer “Righteous Kill.”

Hurd’s Valhalla is a producer on Marvel Studios’ “The Incredible Hulk,” which opens June 13.

Platinum Studios has numerous other comic-driven titles in development. It’s teaming with Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci to produce “Atlantis Rising” at DreamWorks and “Unique” at Walt Disney Pictures.

Platinum Studios controls a library of 5,600 comicbook characters.
