Fargo creator Noah Hawley to helm sci-fi pic Man Alive
According to Deadline, 20th Century Fox has set Fargo creator Noah Hawley to direct MAN ALIVE, an "elevated sci-fi" flick based on a spec script by newcomer Joe Greenberg.
That's about it for details on the planned film, but the studio must have read something they liked since they reportedly purchased Greenberg's spec script in a six-figure deal. Hawley, who is also the writer and showrunner of the FX series, will make his feature film directorial debut with the project. Fargo turned out to be unexpectedly awesome, so I have very high hopes for MAN ALIVE.
Hawley will be back for the third season of Fargo, which will premiere in early 2017, and he is also working on FX's X-Men spinoff TV series Legion and a limited series adaptation of the Kurt Vonnegut book Cat's Cradle.
