20th Century Fox has picked up the rights to Matt Kindt’s Dark Horse comic Mind MGMT, and some big name talent is coming onboard to steer the project through development.  Heat Vision reports that Ridley Scott is producing the feature film adaptation through his Scott Free banner alongside Dark Horse Entertainment’s Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg.  The story centers on a true crime writer named Meru who is searching for the truth behind a mysterious flight when he stumbles upon a secret government agency made up of psychic spies.  Their estranged top agent, Henry Lime, teams up with Meru to dismantle the organization.

Attention has now turned to finding a screenwriter to put on the project.  Kindt’s graphic novel 3 Story: The Secret History of the Giant Man was previously set up at Warner Bros. with Dustin Lance Black writing and directing, but that project is currently in turnaround.  Hit the jump to read a synopsis for Mind MGMT.

Here’s a synopsis for Mind MGMT (via Dark Horse):

Matt Kindt, the most original voice in genre comics, outdoes himself in this bold new espionage series!

Reporting on a commercial flight where everyone aboard lost their memories, a young journalist stumbles onto a much bigger story, the top-secret Mind Management program. Her ensuing journey involves weaponized psychics, hypnotic advertising, talking dolphins, and seemingly immortal pursuers, as she attempts to find the flight’s missing passenger, the man who was Mind MGMT’s greatest success—and its most devastating failure. But in a world where people can rewrite reality itself, can she trust anything she sees?
