Shattered Union

Jerry Bruckheimer wants a film adaptation of 2K Games’ PC relatively low-profile strategy title, which sees the U.S. in the midst of a second civil war.

According to a report in Hollywood trade paper Variety, Babylon 5 creator and Ninja Assassin movie writer J. Michael Straczynski will write the adaptation of the game.

The original title, a turn-based strategy game, was created by Tropico creators PopTop Software and published by Take-Two subsidiary 2K Games in 2005.

In the original video game version of Shattered Union, a terrorist attack on Washington D.C. leaves the nation without decisive leadership, and individual states and territories form their own governments to fight amongst themselves.

This isn’t the only game-related project that Pirates Of The Caribbean producer Bruckheimer currently has in progress. He is also almost completed on a film version of Jordan Mechner’s Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, which wil debut in May 2010.

As for Take-Two and 2K, the film adaptation of the company’s BioShock is still in the works at Universal, although its original 2010 release date has been put back due to budget concerns.
