Noon, a sci-fi short from writer/director Kasra Farahani, is headed to the big screen through Chernin Entertainment, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter. Farahani, best known in Hollywood for his work as an art director, will make his directing debut with the feature version.
Noon is said to be a science fiction story about a soul-deadened "coyote" who reluctantly guides a band of rebels on journey to take control of water and energy on a future Earth where the Sun has stopped moving in the sky.
