Fifty Shades of Grey producer is making a Metro 2033 film

The Metro series is to branch out into the wilderness of cinemas.

Hollywood producer Michael De Luca, whose credits include the 50 Shades of Grey movie adaptation (as well as a string of other hits such as The Social Network and Captain Phillips), has teamed up with author Dmitry Glukhovsky for the project, Variety reports.

My novel and I have been waiting for this to happen for the last 10 years,” Glukhovsky said. I have previously been extremely careful about handing my ‘baby' over to Hollywood producers for adaption for a feature film, but now I feel that it has landed in the right hands.

De Luca and [co-producer Stephen] L'Heureux have a great vision for this project, and I feel it's an honour to work with them.”

Metro 2033 began life as a 2055 Russian novel. The series made its video games debut in 2010 courtesy of Ukrainian studio 4A Games and publisher THQ. It was followed by a sequel in 2013 entitled Metro: Last Light.
