Greg Berlanti to Direct Sony’s Sci-Fi Film Epsilon


“Arrow” showrunner and executive producer Greg Berlanti will direct the sci-fi action film Epsilon for Columbia Pictures, says The Hollywood Reporter. Michael DeLuca is producing the project, which was written by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.

According to the trade, “Epsilon is set after a failed robot rebellion on an Earth almost entirely devoid of electronic devices. The remaining robots seek refuge on a space station and begin to raise their own human lab rats, which they train to act as their agents. The main character is a man who discovers he is more human than he thought.”

Jonathan Kadin is overseeing production for Columbia Pictures.

Berlanti worked as a writer on films such as Green Lantern and Wrath of the Titans and directed the 2010 dramedy Life As We Know It.
