John Scalzi‘s Old Man’s War will be adapted by The Perfect Storm director, Wolfgang Petersen. According to DeadlineDavid Self will write the script and produce for the science fiction adaptation.

Scalzi discussed the news on his blog: “The movie that is eventually made of Old Man’s War will be an adaptation of the book — not the book itself. The filmmakers are going to have to make changes…I wanted filmmakers I felt could best adapt what I wrote.”

Scalzi is a two-time Hugo Award-winning writer. After releasing Old Man’s War (2005), he followed up with three sequels: The Ghost Brigades (2006), The Last Colony (2007), and Zoe’s Tale (2008).
