Wolfgang to Direct an Uprising

Wolfgang Peterson to helm UprisingWolfgang Peterson isn’t really a name that inspires thoughts of classic films like it used to, thanks in no small part to his recent re-imagining, Poseidon, and the Brad Pitt period film Troy, but I really dig the idea of him doing a new sci-fi epic.

According to Variety, said epic will be called Uprising, which Peterson will direct for Columbia Pictures. The story will follow a band of humans who fight back against alien invaders. Blood Diamond writer Charles Leavitt is penning the screenplay.

Not much else is known about the film right now, so allow me to appeal to Peterson’s intellect and beg that he not make the aliens some generic-looking CG creations. Remind us, Wolfgang, of the man who made Das Boot back in the day and give us something special.

Or at least give it lots of explosions…
