Count of Monte Cristo - a Sci-fi film?

From Dark Horizons:

"Warner Bros. Pictures has picked up Ian Shorr's script which is described as a futuristic retelling of Alexandre Dumas' "The Count of Monte Cristo" reports Variety. The original 1844 tale follows a young man wrongly imprisoned. After many years he escapes, transforming himself into the mysterious Count of Monte Cristo, and systematically destroys those who manipulated and enslaved him. Kevin McCormick ("Arthur," "Gangster Squad") will produce the film which is being fast tracked and is already out to directors."

Also news of Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness being adapted into science fiction as well.
