According to Heat Vision Louis Leterrier (Clash of the Titans, The Incredible Hulk) has signed on to direct “a sci-fi disaster pic with shades of The Day After Tomorrow and Taken” called G for Universal.
While the site says the plot is being kept under-wraps, we heard last year that the director was circling a movie which follow ”a father who has to search for his lost child as the world stops spinning and Earth begins to lose its gravity”, so the project is most likely that. Sounds interesting. I imagine there will be a lot of wire-work involved with people floating around everywhere.
The movie is still in the early stages and Universal are currently looking for screenwriters to get started on the script. The plan is for Leterrier to direct G after he completes Now You See Me, which has been described as “The Prestige meets The Town as a team of FBI agents hunts down a group of illusionists who perform miracle heists during their shows and shower the booty on their audiences.”
