Robert Zemeckis Eyeing Here There Be Monsters

Robert Zemeckis appears to have his sights set on a project entitled Here There Be Monsters, The Wrap reports.

An alternate history of America’s first naval hero, John Paul Jones, the film will re-examine the Revolutionary War with sea monsters brought into the mix. Brian Helgeland (LA Confidential, Mystic River, Green Zone) has been brought aboard to supply the screenplay for the Legendary Pictures project.

Zemeckis’ schedule is potentially hectic, though, as his name has been recently associated with the drama Flight, two time-travel films, Timeless and Replay, a sequel to his Who Framed Roger Rabbit and a CGI/live action hybrid How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack.
