The pair - who have worked together as executive producers on TV series Entourage and Boardwalk Empire and the film Contraband - announced they had acquired the rights to the books by Claudio Sanchez and Evil Ink Comics at Comic-Con, Variety reports.

The Amory Wars is a sci-fi series set in an alternate universe and chronicles the rise of superhuman dictator Wilhelm Ryan, and the one family that could hold the key to freeing the world from his clutches.
