Morgan Freeman says that despite all the long delays, his planned adaptation of Arthur C. Clarke’s legendary sci-fi novel “Rendezvous with Rama” is still in the works reports MTV.
Freeman says “It’s a very intellectual science fiction film, a very difficult book to translate cinematically. [At least] we have found it very difficult to translate, to get ready for film…But it’s worth doing. We’re still at it.”
The story follows investigation of a thirty-mile-long alien spaceship with mysterious origins that has been set adrift in our Solar System by an unknown intelligence.
Freeman says “I play the captain of the spaceship Endeavor that is charged with rendezvousing with this thing from outer space to find out what it is [and] what its intentions are.”
David Fincher (“Se7en,” “Fight Club”) remains attached to direct.
