Illustration for article titled Red Dead Redemption Designer Now Making a Movie

And it's not Red Dead Redemption. Christian Cantamessa, who designed and co-wrote the wonderful Red Dead Redemption, is going Hollywood.

Cantamessa sold a script he co-wrote called Wake Cycle. According to Variety, the movie is set in an underground hyperbaric facility after a nuclear fallout. Every six months, two custodial workers can take care of the facility during a ninety minute period, or "wake cycle", during which fresh air is available.

Cantamessa, who has worked on titles like Manhunt and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, will direct the picture. This isn't his first cinematic effort.


In 2009, Cantamessa co-wrote and directed a short film called How I Survived the Zombie Apocalypse.
