Len Wiseman to direct Atlantis Rising

Die Hard 4.0’s Len Wiseman has snapped up yet another possible new film: he’ll direct an adaptation of the graphic novel Atlantis Rising.

DreamWorks is splashing the cash for the film, which is based on Scott Mitchell Rosenberg’s miniseries

Atlantis Rising finds seismic disturbances sending military types exploring deep pockets in the ocean, where an ancient civilization lurks ready to do battle.


Before he can go diving, however, Wiseman will work on another DreamWorks project, Motorcade, which finds a president under attack from an assassin.

Currently, the film is being re-written to star a disgruntled vice presidential candidate who goes after the sitting president with a moose rifle. Just kidding, Sarah! Please don’t shoot us…
