Director Louis Leterrier officially set to make G (formerly Gravity) after Now You See Me

02.23.2011

Last month, we heard rumblings that CLASH OF THE TITANS director Louis Leterrier had become attached to a strange-sounding sci-fi project called GRAVITY. Today, THR is confirming that the French filmmaker is now officially signed on to make the film. And in a likely effort to not have it be confused with Alfonso Cuaron's own ambitious project of the same name, the film will now simply be titled G.

In the process, THR is also confirming that Leterrier will indeed be making NOW YOU SEE ME - a heist thriller that pits the FBI against a bunch of illusionists - his next project before G.

Based on an original idea by producer Guymon Casady (THE EXPENDABLES), G is being described as a "sci-fi disaster pic with shades of THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW and TAKEN." Original! THR is saying that the plot is being kept under wraps, but we already know thanks to the folks at Pajiba that the film is "about a father who has to search for his lost child as the world stops spinning and Earth begins to lose its gravity." Look what you did, INCEPTION! The search now begins for writers to turn that idea into pieces of paper with words on them.
Extra Tidbit: Leterrier's wife Béatrice has her own project in the works called WRECKING BALL.

Have the lost child be Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Zero grav sex scene wouldn't hurt either.

If there is a "gravitational disaster" movie that Hollywood has waiting in the wings...is it a fair bet to say that we audience members can expect to see people like Snooki, Kanye, Lindsay & Charlie suddenly & violently sucked from an outside LA street & thrust into the unforgiving cold death of space?

If that answer is yes...I'm there!

I think it sounds interesting.

I did like The Day After Tomorrow and Taken.
