Brad Bird possibly going off the map for Here there be Monsters

There has been a lot of wondering how Brad Bird will follow up his high-grossing Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. While many want him to start work on The Incredibles 2, his passion historical earthquake drama, 1906, has been languishing as well. But if Legendary has their way, he’ll be working on a decidedly different type of historical film.

According to Vulture, Bird has sat down to talk over directing duties on Here there be Monsters, a film that has “British War Hero John Paul Jones stripped of his naval commission and hired by a shipping magnate to investigate the disappearance of his merchant ships in the North Atlantic.” Naturally, big slimy monsters are involved and things probably explode in interesting ways.

Sounds fun.
