The Incredible Hulk and Clash of the Titans director Louis Leterrier has signed on to direct a new science fiction disaster movie titled G for Universal Pictures.
Little is known about the movie thus far but it’s said to be along the lines of a The Day After Tomorrow mixed together with a little Taken. The premise is based on an original idea by Guymon Casady of co-production banner Management 360, and a screenwriter for the movie is currently being sought out.
Although Leterrier is locked in, this will not be his next project. He recently signed on to Summit Entertainment’s Now You See Me, which he’ll be doing before taking G on. Now You See Me is a heist movie about a group of illusionists who rob banks in the middle of their performances.
Leterrier was also said to be circling the adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan’s Y: The Last Man for a bit, but with his schedule getting more and more occupied it’s unlikely that he’ll be involved if that movie ever gets rolling.
