Variety is reporting that the New regency acquired Freedom Formula: Ghost of the Wasteland to be directed by none other than Bryan Singer. Michael Finch has been hired to write the script and this marks a big return to comic book movies for Singer who also worked on the first two X-Men movies and Superman Returns.

The comicbook has a futuristic premise in which fighter jets have been replaced by pilots who battle in racing exo-suits. The protagonist is a genetically engineered racer who learns his bloodline has the power to change society.
