Warner Bros. has acquired the rights to Nate Simpson's sci-fi property, and appointed Roy Lee and David Heyman as producers on the project, Variety reports.
Nonplayer follows a young woman named Dana Stevens, who retreats into a virtual reality video game, only to find that her adventures there soon intersect with the real world. It debuted in April through Image.
Simpson told Comic Book Resources: "She's kind of given up on the idea of achieving anything in the real world - the only reason she bothers with a job at all is to help pay for her little sister's school tuition. When she's not delivering tamales or kicking butt in the game, she builds her own virtual worlds as a hobby.
"She has some amazing creative gifts, but having received a single rejection letter from a game company, she's decided she's not good enough. Personality-wise, she's one of those people who thinks she's irrelevant and ends up surprised when people are hurt by her offhand rudeness. In the real world, she's an ant. In Jarvath, her actions feel like they have consequences."
Last month, Warner acquired the rights to bring Image Comics' vampire series Undying Love to the big screen.
A potential release window for Nonplayer is yet to be confirmed.
