Lynne Ramsay aims to tackle Moby Dick ... In Space
With her Natalie Portman / Michael Fassbender starring western - Jane Got A Gun - gearing up to shoot very soon, Ms. Ramsay has started developing a science fiction version of Moby Dick, entitled Mobius, with the same company. The Hollywood Reporter describes the potential tone of the script as "A psychological action thriller set in deep space, [where] a captain consumed by revenge takes his crew on a death mission fueled by his own ego and will to control an enigmatic alien."
If there is one director I would like to keep getting work, it is indeed Ramsay who has a knack for both purely visual and highly evocative cinema. Thus far with her three features, Ratcatcher, Movern Callar and the aforementioned Kevin, she has played purely in the art-house world, but I'm anticipating to see what she can do as she edges closer to genre.
