Sam Worthington Going "Rogue Trooper"

Writer Grant Morrison has confirmed he will adapt "Rogue Trooper" for actor Sam Worthington's Full Clip Productions.

The live-action feature will be based on stories debuting in the British comic "2000 AD", (issue #228 -1981), created by Gerry Finley-Day and Dave Gibbons:

"...'Rogue Trooper' follows 'Rogue', a 'G.I.' ('Genetic Infantryman') blue-skinned, manufactured elite soldier and his three comrades as they search for the 'Traitor General'. His comrades are in the form of biochips (onto which a G.I.'s entire personality is downloaded at the time of death for later retrieval) and are named 'Gunnar' (mounted on Rogue's rifle), 'Bagman' (on his backpack) and 'Helm' (on his helmet). Immune to almost all known toxins, Rogue can submerge in strong acid unaffected, also able to withstand an airless vacuum..."

A "Rogue Trooper" third-person shooter video game made by Rebellion Developments, was published by Eidos Interactive in 2006, followed by a Wii version, released in 2009, using story and plot elements from the original comic.

Three novels were also published based on "Rogue Trooper", including "Crucible" by Gordon Rennie (2004);

"Blood Relative" by James Swallow (2005);

"The Quartz Massacre" by Rebecca Levene (2006).
