Rupert Sanders To Direct “The Juliet”

“Snow White And The Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders is making a deal to helm “The Juliet” for Sony Pictures and New Regency says Deadline.

An adaptation of Alfred Bester’s short story, the tale is described as “Bonnie and Clyde in space”, or the even more vague “romance set against the backdrop of a futuristic science fiction landscape”.

Henry Bean adapted the script while Chuck Roven, Alex Gartner and Frank Beddor are producing. Shooting aims to begin in the Spring.

Sanders was linked to the “Van Helsing” reboot at Universal the other week, no word as yet as to how this announcement will affect that project.
