Michael De Luca Boards Adaptation of Dmitry Glukhovsky’s ‘Metro 2033’

Michael De Luca and Stephen L’Heureux have teamed up with author Dmitry Glukhovsky to develop a feature film based on “Metro 2033,” his best­-selling novel that has spawned an 80-­book franchise and two cult video games.

De Luca and Solipsist Film’s L’Heureux will produce. The project was brought to them by Eugene Efuni, who is attached as a producer.

“Metro 2033” tells the story of a young man named Artyom who survived World War III by hiding in Moscow’s subway system, the world’s largest existing nuclear fallout shelter. It’s in the maze of tunnels and stations that comprise the famous Moscow Metro that he and others build a new civilization and culture, mimicking the old world now gone.

“My novel and I have been waiting for this to happen for the last 10 years,” said Glukhovsky. “I have previously been extremely careful about handing my ‘baby’ over to Hollywood producers for adaption for a feature film, but now I feel that it has landed in the right hands. De Luca and L’Heureux have a great vision for this project, and I feel it’s an honor to work with them.”

Glukhovsky is repped by Intellectual Property Group.
