Sam Raimi is set to direct World War 3 which will be based on George Friedman‘s 2009 non-fiction bestseller, The Next 100 Years. Warner Bros. Pictures will set up the project with Sam Raimi at the head, so stoked. I cannot wait to see what Raimi does with this project.
George Friedman’s The Next 100 Years book is described as:
A fascinating, eye-opening and often shocking look at what lies ahead for the U.S. and the world from one of our most incisive futurists.
In his thought-provoking new book, George Friedman, founder of STRATFOR--the preeminent private intelligence and forecasting firm--focuses on what he knows best, the future. Positing that civilization is at the dawn of a new era, he offers a lucid, highly readable forecast of the changes we can expect around the world during the twenty-first century all based on his own thorough analysis and research. For example, The U.S.-Jihadist war will be replaced by a new cold war with Russia; China’s role as a world power will diminish; Mexico will become an important force on the geopolitical stage; and new technologies and cultural trends will radically alter the way we live (and fight wars). Riveting reading from first to last, "The Next 100 Years" is a fascinating exploration of what the future holds for all of us.
