THR is reporting that the Dark Horse comic, Mind MGMT by writer and artist Matt Kindt has been picked up by Twentieth Century Fox for movie rights. The project is being produced by Ridley Scott under his Fox-based Scott Free banner, along with Dark Horse Entertainment’s Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg.
Mind MGMT centers on a government agency consisting of psychic spies and their greatest asset, Henry Lime. After he suffers a breakdown and loses control of his abilities, causing the populace of a town to kill one another, he goes on the run. Several years later, a true-crime author named Meru, who was part of a flight where everyone mysteriously developed amnesia, is saved by Lime and begins to investigate the agency, uncovering her own secret connection to it.
A search for a writer and a director to adapt is under way.
