Universal looks like they are still trying to keep Rupert Sanders and Kristen Stewart separated before they can start up yet another tabloid firestorm. The studio has been offering the director other projects to tackle besides the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman. One of those projects, a Van Helsing reboot starring Tom Cruise, did not take hold. But it seems that the studio has now found the right project for the director to take on.
Deadline reports that Sanders has been offered an adaptation of Alfred Bester’s sci-fi tale The Juliet to direct. The site describes the script, written by Henry Bean (Basic Instinct 2), as a love story set in a near-futuristic science fiction landscape,” and added that it’s like “Bonnie and Clyde in space.”
That is as descriptive as we are going to get right now. So while we may not know the details about the project, it sounds like we may have found Sanders’ next job as a director.
Do you think that The Juliet is a good fit for Sanders?
