For Sci-Fi films, everything seems to be coming up Kosinski…Joe Kosinski that is. The relatively new face on the major motion picture scene has landed a surprising number of high-profile movies in a very short amount of time including the upcoming TRON: LEGACY, the post-apocalyptic OBLIVION, and another Disney reboot in THE BLACK HOLE. Prepare to add another side-dish to an otherwise full plate as Heat Vision reported that Mr. Kosinski has signed on to direct ARCHANGELS, a new sci-fi spec to be produced by Ridley & Tony Scott’s production company Scott Free. The script is written by Andrew Will, another newcomer to the big screen.
The script is set in the near future and is described as a “Bourne”-style thriller crossed with alien elements. The protagonist is part of an elite force that is tasked with tracking aliens who get past Earth’s defense system.
If the early footage from TRON is any indication, then we may have another summer blockbuster to look forward to.
