Rupert Sanders to Helm The Juliet

October 15, 2012


Although his name was, just last week, said to be in the running to take on Van Helsing with Tom Cruise, producer Frank Beddor has now confirmed that Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sander's next project will be The Juliet, an adaptation of Alfred Bester's 1954 short story "Fondly Fahrenheit." He also posted an artistic rendering of the project's sci-fi world which you can check out below.

In development for some time, Beddor spoke about the project in a 2010 interview with I Am Entertainment Magazine.

"It’s lovers on the run in space," Beddor said, "so think ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ in space, but with a very unique Bonnie who has a secret. The tone of it is close to the ‘Bourne Identity’ franchise."

Beddor is producing alongside Chuck Roven with a screenplay by Henry Bean. Production is slated to begin sometime in 2013.

It's currently unclear whether or not Sanders' commitment to The Juliet will prevent him from signing on for Van Helsing, but check back for details as soon as they become available.
