afterburncomic-012909Relativity Media has tapped Matt Johnson to adapt the comic book Afterburn for Neal Mortiz’s Original Films and Toby Maguire’s Maguire Entertainment banner.

A sci-fi adventure based on books published by Red 5 Comics, Afterburn is set against the backdrop of a postapocalyptic Earth whose Eastern Hemisphere was destroyed by a massive solar flare, leaving what life remains mutated from radiation and fallout. The story revolves around a group of treasure hunters who extract such objects as the Mona Lisa, the Rosetta Stone and the Crown Jewels while facing rival hunters, mutants and pirates.
