Warner Bros. Picks Up 'World Breaker' Epic from 'The Signal' Director

If you haven't taken the time to seek out the cool indie sci-fi thriller The Signal, it's available on Blu-Ray & DVD as well as various digital download services. The film is stylish, has a great mystery, and marked the sophomore directing effort of Will Eubank. Now Warner Bros. has decided to give Eubank his next project with World Breaker, based on a script he wrote himself with British writer Phil Gawthorne. But rather then diving into sci-fi again, this project, which reunites Eubank with The Signal producer Bryan Kavanaugh-Jones, is more of a fantasy epic in the same vein of Braveheart and 300. So what's it about?

THR says the story is described as a two-hander, following a mythical Scottish warlord and his sons withstanding a massive castle siege launched by the ruthless commander of an invading army. We don't see many epics like this anymore, and it's certainly something different for Eubank whose first two films were in the sci-fi genre. It sounds like the project was quite coveted by studios as well since Universal and Fox were interested in picking it up before Warner Bros. finalized a deal. Eubank definitely has some potential as a filmmaker and we hope the studios are able to bolster that.

    The Signal was one of my three favourites of the year. Incredible film. So I've got a semi for this movie already.

      I thought it was great as well, the story for this movie sounds epic too, but it needs a handsome budget.

    Kavanaugh-Jones is a badass last name. Scots vs. Vikings!
