'Moby Dick In Space' Movie Gets Some Much-Needed Support
Get ready for Moby Dick... in space!
Lynne Ramsay, director of We Need to Talk About Kevin, has been seeking funding and support for Mobius, a sci-fi take on Herman Melville's classic novel. That financing has finally materialized, in the form of Scott Steindorff and his Scott Pictures banner.
The project will be written by Ramsay and Kevin co-writer Rory Kinnear. Here's the synopsis, from The Hollywood Reporter:
In Mobius, described as psychological action thriller set in deep space, a captain consumed by revenge takes his crew on a death mission fueled by his own ego and will to control an enigmatic alien.
That sounds great. The last time a classic literary character headed into space that I can remember is Jason X. And we all remember how that went.
I haven't seen We Need to Talk About Kevin. I heard it was good. Is that true? What do you think about the prospects of this?
