20th Century Fox has picked up the film rights to Dark Horse comic series Mind MGMT by Matt Kindt, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Ridley Scott will produce through Fox-based Scott Free, along with Dark Horse Entertainment's Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg. Kindt is the writer and artist behind several graphic novels and webcomics. Mind MGMT was launched last year and is his first ongoing series.
The book follows "a government agency consisting of psychic spies and their greatest asset, Henry Lime. After he suffers a breakdown and loses control of his abilities, causing the populace of a town to kill one another, he goes on the run. Several years later, a true-crime author named Meru, who was part of a flight where everyone mysteriously developed amnesia, is saved by Lime and begins to investigate the agency, uncovering her own secret connection to it."
