Skip Woods Tapped To Pen ‘Universal War One’

UMedia is producing "Universal War One," based on the popular sci-fi graphic novel published by Marvel

U.S. scribe Skip Woods, whose credits include “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” and “A Good Day to Die Hard,” is set to pen the bigscreen adaptation of epic sci-fi graphic novel “Universal War One.”

The live-action project – reportedly budgeted at about $40 million — is being developed by Adrian Politowski’s Brussels-based film production and finance group Umedia.

Published by Marvel and Gaul’s Soleil Prods., “Universal War One”  was created by French author Denis Bajram.  The six-part graphic novel has been translated into languages including German, Spanish, Dutch and Italian.

The action-packed dystopian tale is set in a world threatened by a looming civil war between the core planets and outlying planetary settlements. It follows the deadly mission of a band of disgraced soldiers who investigate a gigantic barrier in the outer reaches of space that absorbs all light and matter. After breaching it, the soldiers are fired upon by a vessel of unknown origin.

“Skip (Wood)’s work offers the grit and intelligence that permeates the world of ‘Universal War One,'” said Politowski. “He will undoubtedly retain the essence and spirit of adventure that has made Denis Bajram’s work such a masterpiece.”

Wood is repped by CAA and Sentient Entertainment.
