“X-Men: Apocalypse” director Bryan Singer and “Arrow” executive producer Marc Guggenheim will team to adapt Robert A. Heinlein’s “The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress” for Fox. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film is titled “Uprising.”
Published in 1966, Heinlein’s Hugo Award-winning novel is set in a near future where lunar colonists, living in a society akin to the Old West, revolt against rule from Earth.
An adaptation of “The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress” has been attempted on two previous occasions, one involving Tim Minear and David Heyman for Phoenix Pictures, and the other with Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio for DreamWorks Pictures.
One of the most influential authors in American science fiction — he’s often referred to as “the dean of science fiction writers” — Heinlein wrote 32 novels and 59 short stories, including “Stranger in a Strange Land,” “Starship Troopers,” “The Puppet Masters” and “Red Planet.”
