After helming the feel-inducing Will Smith flicks The Pursuit of Happyness and Seven Pounds, director Gabriele Muccino next heads into science fiction territory with Near Death, and on tap for you today are all the pertinent details!
Per Variety, Voltage Films has brought Muccino (pictured) aboard the sci-fi thriller, which centers on a near-death survivor who starts predicting future events and acting in bizarre ways while his wife notices the world itself changing all around her in impossible ways.
