  According to a press release, Ric Roman Waugh (whose latest film, Snitch, hits theaters in early 2013) has been hired by Relativity Media to rewrite and direct a science fiction thriller being called Tipping Point. So what comic book is it based off of? Or dated novel that’s just found a resurgence? Or unpublished manuscript that’s about to hit the Best Seller List? It’s based on nothing. The original work from the brain of newcomer Todd Stein focuses on a future where the population of the planet is groping at 10 billion, and society has taken China’s One-child Policy and run with it — promising death if you procreate without the proper paperwork. All of that’s well and good for one Population Control Officer, until he finds out he’s chasing (with intent to kill) a former lover and his 12-year-old son he didn’t know existed. It’s a great time for original sci-fi »
