As of this week, Snyder can now add yet another film like these to his growing resume. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Snyder has been attached to direct the big-screen version of the cult comic book Cobalt 60 for Universal. Snyder is also set to produce the film with Debbie Snyder (any relation, I wonder?) but he won't be handling the writing chores as he did with 300. Instead, a search for a writer to adapt the story of masked hero Cobalt 60's thirst for revenge in a post-apocalyptic world full of mutants, on the evil Strontium 90 who murdered his parents, is currently underway.
It's a good thing Snyder picked up Cobalt 60 now that 300 has wrapped and his big-screen adaptation of Tom Clancy's novel Rainbow Six is probably not going to happen for awhile, or ever, because I want him to have a job after he finishes Watchmen. Plus, from what I've seen of 300 it looks to be a fantastic film, so Snyder is smart to stick to the kind of material he knows and can obviously make something great out of. No word yet on potential casting or a start date for Cobalt 60.
