Legendary nabs sci-fier ‘The Join’

Justin Rhodes thriller revolves around particle-accelerator accident

Legendary Pictures has purchased rights to “The Join,” a sci-fi thriller written by scribe Justin Rhodes (“Grassroots”) that Legendary exec Alex Hedlund will oversee for the company.

Set in the wake of a terrible particle accelerator accident, story follows a first response hazmat team sent in to investigate, only to find themselves targeted for assassination as soon as they emerge.

Pic is described as being in the vein of “Three Days of the Condor,” crossed with psychologically-complex pics “Inception” and “Looper.”

Rhodes has been making a name for himself in the feature realm, selling sci-fi thriller “Second Sun” to Warner Bros. and military action-thriller “In Enemy Waters” to Lionsgate/Summit. He’s repped by ICM Partners, Madhouse Entertainment and attorney Eric Suddleson.

In partnership with Warners, Legendary recently released “The Dark Knight Rises” and wrapped Zack Snyder’s Superman pic “Man of Steel,” Guillermo del Toro’s “Pacific Rim” and Sergei Bodrov’s “Seventh Son.” Led by Thomas Tull, the company is currently preparing to cast Gareth Edwards’ “Godzilla.”
