Zack "300" Snyder will produce/direct the upcoming remake of Warner Bros. "The Illustrated Man".

The new film will be based on author Ray Bradbury's collection of short stories, with an adapted screenplay by Alex "Watchmen" Tse.

Published in 1951, Bradbury's "The Illustrated Man" is narrated by a man with 'living' tattoos that predict the future.

Actor Rod Steiger starred in the original, 1969 bigscreen feature, co-starring his wife Claire Bloom.

Di Novi Pictures and Snyder's Cruel and Unusual Films will produce the remake.

Snyder and his producer wife signed a first-look deal with Warners following the huge success of his Montreal-shot actioner "300".
