We Need to Talk about Kevin director to do Moby Dick in space

This may be the best nautical-themed science fiction film since Treasure Planet.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Scott Pictures will be producing Mobius for Lynne Ramsay. The writer and director of We Need to Talk About Kevin is working with her co-writer from that film, Rory Kinnear, to develop a script in which “a captain consumed by revenge takes his crew on a death mission fueled by his own ego and will to control an enigmatic alien.”

Scott Pictures, owned by producer Scott Steindorff (Love in the Time of Cholera, The Lincoln Lawyer) will also be partnering with Ramsay for a western, Jane Got a Gun, starring Natalie Portman and Michael Fassbender. With that project starting in January, it may be a while before we see Mobius, but it sounds like it’ll be worth the wait.
