SF writer Ben Bova's B-Four Productions has teamed up with Red Giant Media to develop Bova's own The Immortality Factor as a movie, Variety reported.

Red Giant principal and The Negotiator writer Kevin Fox will write the screenplay, with Fox, Isen Robbins and Aimee Schoof producing for Red Giant and Grant Turck producing for B-Four.

Factor follows two brothers—one a scientist and one a medical doctor—divided over stem-cell research but united by the need to save the life of a woman they both love.

The book, published by Tor in April, is the uncut version of Bova's 1996 thriller Brothers.
