When a movie is adapted from a novel, one can bet that the book is probably an interesting read. In the case of D. Eric Maikranz, his novel The Reincarnationist Papers has been adapted into a brand new movie entitled INFINITE (2021) starring Mark Wahlberg, directed by Antoine Fuqua, and adapted to the screen by Ian Shorr and Todd Stein. With its interesting premise, it isn’t surprising that it received attention from film producers.
The synopsis of the book from D. Eric Maikranz’s website:
Evan Michaels struggles with being different, with having the complete memories of two other people who lived sequentially before him. He fights loneliness and believes he is unique until he meets Poppy. She recognizes his struggle because she is like him, except that she is much older, remembering seven consecutive lives. But there is something else she must share with Evan — she is a member of the secretive Cognomina. They are, in effect, immortals — compiling experiences and skills over lifetimes into near superhuman abilities that they have used to drive history over centuries.
