Zhang Jimou, the owner of multiple Golden Bears and the author of hit films such as "Hero" and "House of Flying Daggers", will direct the film adaptation of the book "The Three Body Problem", reports Variety.

Enlight Media studio founder Wang Changtian said Zhang is in the early stages of preparation for the film. "We hope that it will bring innovation and succeed on the international market," he said.

Zhang has already made several films for one of China's biggest studios.

The novel published in 2008 by Liu Cisin in China has already been adapted into an animated and feature series, as well as a radio drama. It has been translated into 30 languages, and earlier this year Netflix released its version of the series for the international market, a high-budget production on which David Benioff and DB Weiss, known to the audience for their work on the series "Game of Thrones", worked.

Science fiction, a genre once anathema to China's film industry, has become mainstream in the country over the past decade, reflecting its technological advances.
