According to The Hollywood Reporter Bryan Singer is planing to bring Robert Heinlein’s The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress for the big screen.

I hope this works, I loved the book, although it does contain a lot of Heinlein’s brand of strange sexual experimentation along with a lot of Libertarian economic theory. I think it was a magnificent read so I hope they do a good job of making it for the big screen.

Bryan Singer is tackling an adaptation of The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, based on the classic sci-fi book by Robert A. Heinlein. Twentieth Century Fox recently picked up the movie rights.

Arrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim will adapt the book for the project, which will be titled Uprising. Singer is producing with Lloyd Braun of Whalerock Industries and Thor Halvorssen. Executive producers are Andrew Mittman and Jason Taylor, and Alex Lloyd and Richard Martin are co-producing.
Heinlein’s 1966 sci-fi novel centers on about a lunar colony’s revolt against rule from Earth. The novel was nominated for the 1966 Nebula award (honoring the best sci-fi and fantasy work in the U.S.) and won the Hugo Award for best science fiction novel in 1967.
