No. Ultraviolet is based on a script written by American film-maker Kurt Wimmer (who also directed the movie). Wimmer has admitted to getting the idea for the movie from a 1980 movie that centers around a woman and young boy on the run from the Mafia.

Ultraviolet was subsequently novelized in 2006 by American author Yvonne Navarro.
