Lynne Ramsay Caught In The “Mobius”

Scott Pictures have come aboard to produce and finance Lynne Ramsay’s Moby Dick-inspired sci-fi feature “Mobius” reports Heat Vision.

Ramsay is also re-teaming with her “We Need to Talk About Kevin ” co-writer Rory Kinnear to work on the script for this deep space-set psychological action thriller.

Taking its cue from Herman Melville’s 1851 classic, the story follows a captain consumed by revenge who takes his crew on a death mission fueled by his own ego and will to control an enigmatic alien.

Ramsay, Scott Steindorff, Peter Fruchtman, Dylan Russell and Scott LaStaiti will produce. Ramsay and Steindorff are also teaming on the upcoming western “Jane Got a Gun” with Natalie Portman and Michael Fassbender. That movie starts filming late January.
