Nate Kenyon's novel Day One only came out this month but it's already been snapped up for a big screen adaptation. The thriller sees a Terminator-style dystopian nightmare descend upon New York, leaving hacker John Hawke fighting for survival as he tries to reunite with his pregnant wife.
Day One, published by St. Martin's Press (a subsidiary of Thomas Dunne books), will be produced by Benderspink, with a script from Dean Loftis.
It'll be interesting to see what the trailer can deliver. There are many movies expounding the dangers of evil, sentient machines, suggesting that although the concept will be popular, Day One may find it difficult to distinguish itself.
If Day One heads down the route of an impressive, city-trashing blockbuster like The Day the Earth Stood Still, or a smaller, craftier number like Cloverfield, then it will surely be an entertaining watch. Will you be watching Day One? Let us know your thoughts below.
