Studio 8 has acquired the rights to the action thriller Planet Kill for Steven Soderbergh to produce and to possibly direct, according to Deadline. There are no details as of yet on Planet Kill‘s original story from Scott Z. Burns (ContagionThe Bourne Untimatum) and James Greer (UnsaneThe Spy Next Door).

Soderbergh and Greer have the psycho thriller Unsane coming out next, on March 23. The film stars Amiee Mullins (Stranger ThingsYoung Ones), Juno Temple (AtonementMaleficent), Amy Irving (Crossing DelanceyCarrie) and Claire Foy (The CrownWolf Hall). Unsane was shot completely on Soderbergh’s iPhone, and is the first major filmmaker to do this. There is no word about whether or not Planet Kill will be shot on a phone.

Planet Kill will be produced by Burns and written by Greer. Louise Rosner and John Graham will oversee the film for Studio 8.
