Netflix is set to get another video game adaptation to join The Witcher and Castlevania. The Hollywood Reporter brings word that the streaming giant is working on an animated/live-action film based on the popular 2003 video game. Rob Letterman (Detective Pikachu, Goosebumps) will direct while Jason Altman and Margaret Boykin will produce for Ubisoft Film & Television. Netflix has yet to hire any writers.

The game takes place in the 25th century on a mining planet that is being attacked by aliens, and the military leaders may be working with them. A young photojournalist named Jade joins the underground resistance movement. The game was popular enough that Ubisoft is working on a prequel.
