Warner Bros. has selected Trevor Cawood to direct their long-in-development sci-fi project, Karma Coalition.
First purchased by the studio in 2008, the script arrives from Shawn Christensen, better known as the lead singer of the rock band stellastar* (named for Caroline Munro’s character in the cult 1978 film Starcrash). The story involves a fugitive racing against the end of the world to prove his innocence and find out who was responsible for the death of his wife.
Dan Lin (Sherlock Holmes, Terminator Salvation) is producing and, with Cawood aboard, the project is likely to gain some speed. Cawood will make his feature debut with the project, but has previously worked in commercials and shorts. You can watch his previous sci-fi short, “Terminus,” in the player below, courtesy of Vimeo.
