Alex Proyas

Another cool sci-fi project. I don't know about everyone else, but I've been waiting for Alex Proyas to get back into futuristic sci-fi like his past films Dark City and I, Robot. He's currently slated to direct Paradise Lost and Dracula Year Zero, but there is another new project he has on the horizon. Deadline reports that Summit has closed a deal for rights to adapt AMP, a "near-future" science fiction thriller written by Daniel H. Wilson (also of Robopocalypse that Spielberg is adapting). Wilson agreed to Summit's deal because he was impressed by Proyas, who is attached to produce and potentially direct this for Mystery Clock Cinema.

AMP, which is still being written by Wilson (Robopocalypse isn't even out until June 2011), is set in a world where the technology designed to make the disabled whole, turns them into supermen. So I imagine they'll play around with the ethics and implications. It's an interesting premise, but I want to know more. Plus I'm sure the title AMP is an acronym for something. Apparently the novel has a "mix of scifi action and political allegory reminiscent of District 9." Summit will hire a writer who'll work with Wilson's pages as he's writing them to adapt into a script. Once that's ready, Proyas will probably make the decision to direct. Stay tuned!

One of my favorite directors, just hope that he had more power as a producer, to gain more creative control over his movies.
