Guardians of the Galaxy Writer Nicole Perlman To Re-Write Adaptation of Hugh Howey's Wool
When the adaptation of Hugh Howey's thrilling novel, Wool, was announced back in 2012, sci-fi fans everywhere rejoiced at the thought of seeing this brilliantly bleak dystopian world brought to life. That Ridley Scott and Steve Zaillian were the pair attached to produce the movie served only to increase the anticipation, but fast forward three years and news on the project had been worryingly lacking. It all started to seem that Ridley Scott had been too busy with other projects, such as Prometheus 2 and The Martian, and that Wool had simply been set aside for a later date. But now it would seem that progress is being made, because according to The Wrap, Guardians of the Galaxy writer, Nicole Perlman has been signed to re-write the Wool script.

Perlman, who co-wrote Guardians of the Galaxy with James Gunn, will be re-writing J Blakeson's (The Fifth Wave) initial treatment before Scott and Zaillan look to attach a director. While this may seem like a step backwards for those who are desperate for a big-screen trip into Hugh Howey's 'Silo', it does at least represent significant intent on behalf of those who are looking to make the film.

Howey's novel is set in a post-apocalyptic future that sees the last remnants of humanity living out their lives in a giant underground silo. After generations of living underground, none of the silo's inhabitants have any knowledge of what caused the surface of the Earth to become uninhabitable, but by the time Howey's series concludes, the mystery of how humanity came to live underground has slowly been revealed.
