We feel sort of cheated that humanoids haven’t actually been discovered by now, but hey, put them into a movie, let the shit hit the fan, and you’ve got our full attention. Will this latest adaptation have yours?
According to Deadline, Sony Pictures has acquired the Joe Haldeman science fiction novella Seasons and will develop it for Michael De Luca to produce and Tim Miller to direct. Sebastian Gutierrez has been set to write the screenplay. The deal was made by Columbia Pictures president Doug Belgrad and production president Hannah Minghella, and Sam Dickerman will oversee it. Gutierrez’s scripting credits include Snakes on a Plane and Gothika, and he just helmed Hotel Noir. Alissa Phillips will be exec producer.
The novella, which is part of the 1985 Haldeman short story collection Dealing In Futures, focuses on an anthropological expedition to a planet with sentient humanoids that goes horribly awry.
More on this one as it comes.
