The question of what Snow White And The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders will move on to next has been a ceaseless journey. He’s lined up a DEA drama, a sci-fi take on Battle of Algiers, a Tom Cruise-led Van Helsing reboot and even a Snow White spin-off featuring Chris Hemsworth‘s character.
Deadline now has another to add to the pile, as they report Sony Pictures and New Regency are talking with Sanders for an upcoming science-fiction romance story The Juliet. The Believer scribe Henry Bean adapted Alfred Bester‘s original short story, which is set in the near future, but unfortunately no other details are available on what the feature adaptation holds.
If the source is to be believed, this could actually, and finally, be Sanders next project, as production is looking to kick off this spring. Even though story details are scarce, I’d much rather see this young director take on a mysterious project than a reboot or even a spin-off. Hopefully he’ll wrap up his decision soon and we’ll have more details as they come in.
