D.J. Caruso

Though his last venture into sci-fi resulted in the lackluster adaptation of I Am Number Four, director D.J. Caruso is sticking with the genre for his next project. Deadline reports Caruso is in talks to direct an original film called Invertigo, a new drama from Ehren Kruger and Bradley Camp that sees a NASA satellite that crash-lands in New York City, and it creates a “reverse-G vortex” where gravity is inverted. Apparently some sort of rescue mission (presumably to reverse the reverse-G vortex) must succeed in order for the planet to survive. It's a big budget film set up at Sony that's looking to get off the ground quickly.

While the concept sounds interesting, a script from Kruger, who has written horror films like Scream 3 and The Ring, not to mention the Transformers sequels Revenge of the Fallen and Dark of the Moon doesn't inspire much confidence. The other writer, Bradley Camp, only seems to have experience as an executive producer of Lord of War and S1m0ne, so that doesn't sound very promising either. Of course, Caruso knows how to direct action and since he's got a big budget this time, I'm hoping he can pull off something great. Despite their derivative nature, I was a fan of both Disturbia and Eagle Eye, so count me intrigued for now.
