So far, the likes of Drew Pearce, the British writer behind 'Iron Man 3' and the third 'Sherlock Holmes' film, and 'Batman' writer David S. Goyer have worked on the story.

The project is due for release in 2014, with Gareth Edwards in the director's chair, the helmsman who broke through with 2010's 'Monsters'.

So far, the film is still seeking its lead, with Joseph Gordon-Levitt having reportedly passed on the opportunity.

Also thought to be in the running are Henry Cavill, currently in tights as the 'Man of Steel', 'Argo' and 'Killing Them Softly' Scoot McNairy, and the simmering Caleb Landry Jones from 'X-Men: First Class'.
