Ryan Engle heads ‘West’

Scribe to pen comicbook adaptation

Sci-fi thriller “The New West” has picked up momentum, with Ryan Engle onboard to pen the script.

The feature adaptation will be produced by Benderspink, Len Wiseman via his Sketch Films and Black Bull Media principal Gareb Shamus.

Benderspink set up the project earlier this year. Logline for the movie is being kept under wraps.

Comicbook, published in 2005, was penned by Jimmy Palmiotti and illustrated by Phil Noto. The plot in the comicbook centers on a bomb creating an electromagnetic pulse that causes all technology to stop working in Los Angeles and a disgraced former LAPD detective who must rescue the kidnapped mayor.

Engle recently adapted Midway videogame “Rampage” for New Line, set up with John Rickard. He also recently performed on-set production scriptwriting work for “Non-Stop,” the Liam Neeson actioner shot by Jaume Collet-Serra with Joel Silver and Studiocanal producing.

Engle’s a former exec at Kopelson Entertainment who first gained notice with his thriller spec “On a Clear Day,” which landed on the Black List.

Engle is repped by Original Artists and managed by Mosaic.
