Fourth Realm Trilogy heading for big screen

23rd February 2010

The bestselling sci-fi series written by reclusive author John Twelve Hawks is set to hit the silver screen.

According to Hollywood Reporter, Fox has acquired the rights to the Fourth Realm Trilogy and hired Alex Tse, who co-wrote the adaptation of Alan Moore's Watchmen, to handle the script.

The Traveller, the first book of the series, was published in 2006 and spawned two successors - The Dark River and The Golden City - which drew comparisons with Dan Brown, The Matrix and Star Wars.

Themes explored in the Fourth Realm Trilogy include free will, public surveillance and the ever-popular battle between good and evil.

Hawks, which is the pseudonym of a writer whose real name is unknown, is said to live 'off the grid' and has never met his editor or agent, publisher Random House.

Earlier this month, Hawks was featured in a Guardian list of surviving literary recluses, alongside greats such as Thomas Pynchon, Don DeLillo and Harper Lee.
