Fame Helmer Goes To “Arcana”

Choreographer-turned-helmer Kevin Tancharoen (the upcoming “Fame” remake) will helm the sci-fi actioner “Arcana” for Universal Pictures says Variety

Details of the script by John Ridley (“Red Tails”) are being kept under wraps but it’s described as a Blade Runner-esque live-action graphic novel that includes martial arts.

The film will use the heavily green screen production look used for Zack Snyder’s “300” film adaptation. Brett Ratner and Jay Stern will produce

Harry Shum Jr., a regular in Fox’s upcoming show “Glee,” helped develop the original idea with Tancharoen.
