'Alex Garland' was paid $1 million by Microsoft to write an adaptation of the popular game. Microsoft then sold the script to Universal for $10 million.
A rumor was started that Alex Garland's script had been dropped, and that D.B. Weiss had replaced him as the screenwriter, but Weiss confirmed in an interview on Gamesetwatch.com that he was only revising Garland's script.
Producer Peter Jackson asked Guillermo del Toro to helm the movie, but del Toro turned the offer down so he could direct Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008).
