Zemeckis Wonders If “There Be Monsters”

Robert Zemeckis is in talks to direct “Here There Be Monsters” at Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures says The Wrap.

The story follows Revolutionary War naval hero John Paul Jones, but throws in sea monsters to the mix – meaning the tone looks to be an outright fantasy film.

Brian Helgeland has been hired to write the script based on a concept by Thomas Tull who is producing alongside Jon Jashni, Todd Lieberman and David Hoberman.
