Rupert Sanders To Helm “Van Helsing”

While “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders may not return to that franchise, Universal Pictures is keeping him close as it looks like they’re offering him another.

Twitchfilm reports that very early conversations are happening for Sanders to take on the Tom Cruise-led reboot of the monster hunting “Van Helsing”.

Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (“Transformers,” “Star Trek”) are penning the script for a more grounded and realistic approach than Stephen Sommers’ wild CG-heavy 2004 effort starring Hugh Jackman.

Cruise is currently at work on Doug Liman’s sci-fi tale “All You Need Is Kill”.
