Resident Evil duo Paul W. S. Anderson and longtime producing partner Jeremy Bolt got the right to The Warded Man the debut fantasy novel by Peter V. Brett.
According to The Hollywood Reporter it is the first in a trilogy titled "The Demon Cycle", it's set in a unspecified future where we're plagued by demons, and mankind has reverted to a feudal state. Three young heroes rise up with the potential to win back the earth, but the one who has the best chance is our tattooed title character, whose tattoos aren't just for fashion, but spellcasting function.
Brett interestingly wrote the whole book on his Blackberry on his two hours commute to his work in Manhattan.
