Fantasy Flight Games' Dust universe, created by Paolo Parente and set in a steampunk version of the 1940's where World War II still rages, may be getting the big screen treatment. The Hollywood Reporter reports that producer Dan Lin (The Lego Movie, Sherlock Holmes) is attached to a movie to be directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber (Dodgeball, We're the Millers). Thurber came across Dust as a graphic novel when visiting Hollywood’s Meltdown Comics, subsequently discovering the game and its world. He sought out Parente, optioned the game himself and began developing his own take on it. The movie is currently seeking writers. Find our more by clicking here.
