Steampunk Tale “Boneshaker” Adapted

Cross Creek Pictures, Exclusive Media Group and Hammer Films are teaming to produce a film adaptation of Cherie Priest’s 2009 steampunk sci-fi novel ”Boneshaker” reports Variety.

Set in an alternate 1880’s in which Seattle has been walled off from the world and toxic gas has turned much of the remaining population into zombies.

In this mess a young widow hunts for her teen son while dealing with airship pirates, a criminal overlord and heavily armed refugees. The book is the first in a series dubbed ‘The Clockwork Century’.

John Hilary Shepherd (”Nurse Jackie”) is adapting the screenplay. Hammer’s head of production Tobin Armbrust is overseeing.
