Tarsem Singh Putting Together Puzzling 'Panopticon' Action Thriller

August 9, 2013

Tarsem Singh

Director Tarsem Singh already has a couple future projects in the works with the sci-fi thriller Selfless starring Ryan Reynolds and an ambitious film called Eye in the Sky about a drone attack seen from the perspective of 62 different people. Now we can add another to the mix that's been in development for years. The Wrap reports The Cell, The Fall and Immortals director is set to helm The Panopticon, a sci-fi action thriller from After the Sunset writer Craig Rosenberg. You may remember we wrote about the film all the way back in 2009 when The Haunting in Connecticut director Peter Cornwell was involved. More below!

Singh joining the project is good news since the original story follows a salesman who receives a pre-recorded message from himself that tells him the world is about to end and only he can save it. It's a race against time to piece a puzzle together in order to save mankind. While that sounds vague and generic, having read the script years ago, I'll reiterate that there are plenty of cool twists and turns that make this a compelling and rich story. And with Singh involved, you can guarantee that it will look gorgeous. Even the hollow  and goofy Mirror Mirror had style and flare. We'll be keeping our eye on this one for sure.
