Lynne Ramsay to Write and Direct Sci-Fi Tale Mobius


Lynne Ramsay has plans to write and direct a sci-fi version of Herman Melville’s literary classic, “Moby Dick.” The Hollywood Reporter brings word that the We Need to Talk About Kevin helmer will re-team with Rory Kinnear, her co-writer on that project, for Mobius.

Mobius turns the Peqoud into an starship with an Ahab-inspired Captain vowing revenge against a space-creature.

Ramsay’s next, Jane Got a Gun, is a western starring Natalie Portman and Michael Fassbender.

Scott Pictures will finance Mobius with Ramsay, Scott Steindorff, Peter Fruchtman, Dylan Russell and Scott LaStaiti producing.
