Matt Reeves And Gary Whitta Take On Mouseguard Adaptation

MouseGuardAccording to The Hollywood Reporter, Cloverfield director Matt Reeves and Rogue One writer Gary Whitta will adapt Mouseguard for 20th Century Fox.

The Boom! Studios/Achaia series by David Petersen revolves around a group of 12th Century mice sworn to protect commoners in a world devoid of humans. Successfully defeating a weasel warlord some years earlier, the Guard now functions as escorts, pathfinders and body guards. They also protect safe routes between villages and the borders of mouse-territory.

Fox aims to make the film as a live action/motion capture project using the technology pioneered in their recent Planet of the Apes series. Reeves, who directed Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, will produce the film with Boom's Ross Richie and Stephen Christy.
