(FROM VARIETY) ? Warner Bros. and videogame developer Capcom are developing a feature film based on the hit game Lost Planet. Writer David Hayter, who just wrote Warner Bros.’ Zack Snyder-directed Watchmen, has been tapped for the screenplay. The game revolves around an expedition to an ice planet that harbors an energy source with the potential to save mankind. Released in Japan in late 2006 and North America in early 2007, it has sold over 2 million units, and a sequel is believed to be in the works. Gamers know Hayter as the voice of Solid Snake in the Metal Gear games. He also did script work on the first two X-Men movies.
