Twentieth Century Fox recently acquired the movie rights to Heinlein’s The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress and Bryan Singer has signed on.
The adaptation will be titled Uprising and Arrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim will write the script.
It has not been announced that Singer will direct, however, he previously directed X-Men: Days of Future Past, and his next assignment is directing X-Men: Apocalypse, which starts shooting in April. So he probably hasn’t been hired to sweep the floors.
Twice before studios planned to film the novel but DreamWorks and Phoenix Pictures eventually allowed the rights to revert to Heinlein’s estate.
