Oscar Sharp To Direct Mammoth Thriller “Woolly”

Celebrated short film director Oscar Sharp is attached to direct the film adaptation of Ben Mezrich’s in the works novel “Woolly: The True Story of the De-Extinction of One of History’s Most Iconic Creatures”.

Based on a pitch and partial manuscript, the story follows a geneticist and his team of young Harvard scientists who set out to do the impossible: bring the woolly mammoth back from extinction.

Their goal is to populate a huge tract of the Siberian tundra, known as Pleistocene Park, as a hedge against a ticking time bomb that’s hidden deep within the permafrost.

Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen are producing the film for 20th Century Fox.
