Ruairi Robinson (“Blinky”) will make his feature directorial debut on “The Last Days On Mars” for Qwerty Films and PolyGram Films says The Hollywood Reporter.
Based on a script by Clive Dawson, the story follows an astronaut crew on a mission to Mars. A routine excavation turns deadly when one of them falls to his death and his body taken host and re-animated by the very life form they sought to discover.
Shooting kicks off early 2012 on location in Jordan and at Shepperton Studios in the UK. Michael Kuhn and Andrea Cornwell will produce.
