NISPEL GOES SUBTERRANEAN
Variety reports that The Texas Chainsaw Massacre director Marcus Nispel has set up an original pitch, Subterranean, with screenwriter John Jarrell (Romeo Must Die) at Disney-based Beacon Pictures.
The film, developed for Nispel to direct, is set beneath the city of New York and is described as a sci-fi thriller in a similar vein to Aliens that centers on what is discovered in a subterranean area and how it could impact mankind.
Nispel will also reportedly work with Beacon to develop the video game based upon the film. He is currently directing USA Network's Dean Koontz mini-series Frankenstein.
