Greg Rucka's graphic novel Whiteout is coming to the big screen.
The story, about a U.S. Marshal investigating the first murder ever in Antartica, is being adapted for the movies by Joel Silver's Dark Castle Productions.
"It's a very ambitious as a film and very ambitious from a storytelling point of view because you’re dealing with character. It's all about these characters in a very hyped up environment, the south pole. The suspense-thriller aspect of it is there. It's plotted, it's exciting but you're really getting into the interaction between these people in an extreme environment. It’s like being on the moon," said the project's screenwriter Christine Roum.
As TheFeed reader pwnosaur points out, the part of the U.S. Marhal will be played by groovy-hot actress Kate Beckinsale.
