Not to be confused with Ridley Scott‘s upcoming Prometheus, after picking up the sci-fi feature Prosthesis back in January, Variety has just informed us that Universal has finally chosen a writer to pen the project; they’ve tapped Walking Dead writer and producer Scott M. Gimple for the job.

Often hitting the expected notes, coming home movies have become very familiar by this point. Writer-director Claudia Myers‘ Fort Bliss, however, stands apart in a few ways. Following a mother, played by Michelle Monaghan, the story tells of her return home as she has trouble picking up where she left off with her child. It’s the kind of […]
