I've never heard of this, but I looked up what it's about on Wikipedia (that's how lazy people learn about things), and it seems like a pretty cool idea. But I also see how it could be completely ruined. Just wait for the main character to be cast, it will be a good indication of the direction the studio is taking it. If it's Christian Bale or DiCaprio or something, maybe it will have potential. If they get Justin Timberlake or Sam Worthington, run to the hills.
