Brad Bird to Show Us Here There be Monsters?With the success of Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, all eyes have been on director Brad Bird to see what he does next. Turns out he may be dipping his toes into some monster-infested waters.

New York Magazine’s Vulture reports that Bird is meeting with Legendary Pictures about possibly directing Brian Helgeland’s American history and monster mash-up Here There Be Monsters, which pitted American Revolutionary War hero John Paul Jones against various tentacled monsters of the deep.

The Helgeland-fashioned script had Jones wrongly stripped of his British naval commission and hired by a shipping magnate to investigate the disappearance of his merchant ships in the North Atlantic. Soon enough Jones and his crew suspect that it’s the handiwork of a sea monster and have to fight to survive it. Giant squids, call your agents!

More as it comes.
