Coming off a very successful run on his highly acclaimed film A Lonely Place to Die (review here), the filmmaking industry is now wide open for director Julian Gilbey, and we’ve got the scoop on just what he’ll be up to next! Read on for details.
According to Empire Online Gilbey has just signed on to direct Offworld for producer Lloyd Levin.
“It’s a kind of an intergalactic Naked Prey,” Levin told Empire, “a pedal-to-the-metal safari movie set on an alien planet. There’s lots of nasty creatures – some even on the good guys’ side.”
Levin has worked with directors of the calibre of Guillermo del Toro, Paul Greengrass, and Paul Thomas Anderson so Gilbey should be in safe hands for his Hollywood debut. So why Gilbey? “A Lonely Place to Die is a movie after my own heart,” Levin explained. “I loved how physical and visceral it was.”
David Leslie Johnson (Orphan, “The Walking Dead”) is writing the script. More on this one as it comes.
