Lynne Ramsay to Write & Direct Moby Dick In Space “Mobius”

Lynne Ramsay, the director of the rather good but hardly seen (and it has to be said somewhat disturbing) We Need To Talk About Kevin, has been lined up to write & direct Mobius, a sci-fi retelling of the classic Herman Melville story Moby Dick.  Yup it’s Moby Dick in Space!

With finance in place and backers Scott Pictures on boar, Ramsey will start the project once her Michael Fastbender/Natalie Portman starring Western Jane Got A Gun finishes. Ramsey describes the story of Mobius as ” the tale of a captain consumed by revenge takes his crew on a death mission fueled by his own ego and will to control an enigmatic alien.”

Ramsey will be joined on the project by her We Need To Talk About Kevin co-writer  Rory Kinnear as well as Jane Got A Gun producers Scott Steindorff, Peter Fruchtman, Dylan Russell and Scott LaStaiti.
Expect more news as we get it. For the record if you haven’t seen We Need To Talk About Kevin add it to your list. It’s a brilliant film and shows Ramsey is a director to watch out for.
