Arrival's Eric Heisserer Writing Secret Valiant Series


Screenwriter Eric Heisserer is one of Hollywood's hotter commodities after penning last year's international hit and critical favorite Arrival – a film that has earned a total of 8 Academy Award nominations, including an Best Adapted Screenplay nod for Heisserer himself.

But that's not Heisserer's only genre film bona fide.

He's also currently writing Valiant's back-to-back Harbinger and Bloodshot feature films for Sony Pictures. But it doesn't look like will be the end of Heisserer's involvement with the Valiant Universe…

According to a new teaser released by Valiant today, Heisserer will be joining artists Raul Allen & Patricia Martin – the Harvey Award-nominated team behind the publisher's Wrath of the Eternal series – for a secret new project in June that seems to invoke the same cryptic imagery that the writer used to great effect in Arrival…

Per Valiant's teaser, "tomorrow, the secret is out…"

We will see Heisserer dip his toe back into the Harbinger/Bloodshot corner of the Valiant publishing line for something tying into the films? Or something new entirely? With the first Valiant movie slated for 2018, it's likely to be big…and Heisserer's status as an Oscar nominee and major sci-fi talent is a rare selling point to be sure.

Expect an announcement to be forthcoming in the next 24 hours from points unknown.
