The subsequent challenge from Oscar-winning Back to the Future director Robert Zemeckis has been revealed. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Zemeckis is in “final negotiations” to direct Ares, a sci-fi thriller for Warner Bros.
The film will probably be written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet, who most just lately wrote the screenplay for the MCU film Captain Marvel. She additionally penned the script for the 2018 Tomb Raider reboot starring Alicia Vikander.
THR says the story of Ares is “genre-bending,” involving an astronaut who crash lands within the African desert. On his journey to seek out his household, he learns his mission was really “part of a larger conspiracy and that he may be carrying a secret that could forever change the world.”
Ares is the second of Zemeckis’ high-profile tasks presently within the works, the opposite being a live-action remake of Pinocchio. THR says it’s unknown which challenge will go forward first.
Zemeckis is staying with Warner Bros. for Ares, as he’s presently in post-production on the Roald Dahl film Witches film for the studio starring Anne Hathaway.
