Writer Chris Morgan seems to be having a great run this season with the current billion dollar success of his latest script entry into Universal’s Fast saga, The Fate Of The Furious. It certainly helped in nearly attaching him to the studio’s current development of a spin-off with two of the franchise’s co-stars and now we’re learning that Morgan is part of another venture with Voltage Pictures.
The news at Deadline regards Luke Paradise’s speculative script for The Prodigal, an action title now moving forward with a story centered as a modern revenge tale about a soldier’s return home and his subsequent inquiry surrounding his brother’s mysterious death. Morgan will produce with development head Ainsley Davies at Chris Morgan Productions, next to Voltage’s Alissa Phillips and Nicolas Chartier producing and Jonathan Deckter executive producing.
Morgan, who has been with the Fast saga since The Fast And The Furious: Tokyo Drift, has several projects being readied at Universal, including Monsterverse titles centered on Van Helsing and Alex Kurtzman’s The Mummy, and is also so far attached to an adaptation of game property Gears Of War.
