Live Action Warhammer Movie Coming Together

November 19, 2009

Gamers who've loyally played the table top fantasy game Warhammer 40,000 will be glad to know that the live action/CG movie is well on its way. The film now has a writer and a director, and the writer -- Dan Abnett -- sat down recently to discuss his role in creating the movie. Hit the jump to hear what Abnett has to say.

JoBlo tells us this about the movie:

Rookie director Martyn Pick has been given directorial duties for Ultramarines, based on the table-top game and many subsequent books and whatnots. Screenplay is already being banged out by Dan Abnett, known in the industry for his work with Marvel and DC as well as having written a number of 40K books already, so the dude knows that stuff.


The original 40K table-top game had super-charged Space Marines and the Human Imperial Guard try to save mankind of the 41st Millennium against hordes of alien forces.

Here's what Dan Abnett, the man himself, has to say about the whole thing:
