OSCAR ISAAC To Star/Produce EX MACHINA Adaptation

It was recently announced that Legendary Entertainment would be adapting Brian K. Vaughan's Eisner Award-winning comic book Ex Machina under a different movie title.

Ok, that's a little misleading.

EW has learned that Isaac, now seen in theaters as X-Wing all-star Poe Dameron in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, will headline The Great Machine, a film adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan and Tony Harris' Ex Machina comic series.

Back in 2014, Oscar Isaac starred in Ex Machina, one of the best sci-fi films of the last decade.

Isaac will also produce The Great Machine with his manager Jason Spire, while Anna Waterhouse and Joe Shrapnel, who wrote the Kristen Stewart film Seberg, is set to pen the script. There is no director yet attached.

Isaac played the villainous Apocalypse in the Fox X-Men franchise, but hasn't appeared as any actual superheroes until now. Recent rumors had him for the part of Two-Face in the upcoming Matt Reeves Batman movie, but nothing came of it.

Vaughan and artist Tony Harris launched Ex Machina in 2004 through DC's Wildstorm imprint.

Isaac will reportedly portray Mitchell Hundred - A.K.A. the Great Machine - a superhero who becomes mayor of New York City. However, after growing exhausted of fighting crime, he decides to run for mayor of New York City, and he seals an election win after stopping a second plane from flying into the World Trade Center towers on September 11, 2001. But it was always more of a political story than a superhero tale.
