Louis Leterrier Set to Direct Secret Sci-Fi Tentpole 'G' for Universal
After bring the sword and sandals remake Clash of the Titans to the big screen, it looks like director Louis Leterrier is ready to head in the opposite direction for some sci-fi. Heat Vision reports the director has signed on to direct and produce a secretive sci-fi tentpole project simply titled G. Universal is behind the project whose plot is under wraps, but apparently the film is said to be a disaster film with hints of Day After Tomorrow and Taken. The project is still very much in the early stages of development as the project has been built out of an idea from producer Guymond Casady and is currently being sent out to writers.
Being a cross between The Day After Tomorrow and Taken, I'm envisioning some sort of plot where the world is ending, but one man will do whatever he takes to see the woman he loves one last time. That's just pure speculation on my end, but it definitely sounds like a simple yet epic idea. Leterrier also just recently signed on to direct the heist film Now You See Me from producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, so he's been pretty busy lining up his future slate. It's hard to get excited about G without any plot information, but I'm at least curious. How about you?

Is it just me or does LL look like Buster from Arrested Development?

I bet it's a movie about "Gravity" where as the earth loses gravity for some reason (like 2012 and aligned planets is causing this) This should be intersting to see how the world end or "changes" as it starts to lose gravity. Imagine the visual effects will be cool like cars and people start to lift helplessly up in the air. LOL!

Imagine a world without gravity...no oceans/rivers/lakes...all the worlds water would float around and mix together meaning no fresh water and all fish dead... then there is plantsa that use gravity to sense up and down so they know which direction to send roots/leaves in.... then of course all animals other than man would not be able to cope and would die out... any director taking on this story needs some serious scientific advice!!
