Ingelsby Sleeps

Writer Brad Ingelsby has been tapped to write SLEEPER. The film centers on an operative whose fusion with an alien artifact makes him impervious to pain and allows him to pass it on to others through skin contact. He is placed undercover in a villainous organization by an intelligence agency and falls for a member of the group named Miss Misery. Tom Cruise was previously attached to star, Sam Raimi produces.

The article announcing this ends with the tidbit that Ingelsby made his first sale earlier this year with LOW DWELLER which Ridley Scott is set to direct with Leo DiCaprio set to star. Is it me or is Ridley Scott directing every movie for the next five years? The journalist in me says I love Scott but I'd rather he take on a project, really concentrate on it, and then go direct the hell out of it, especially since he's coming off what I consider a somewhat poor run. But the child in me wants to say hey Ridley if you love directing so much why don't you just marry it.

Also, a thousand apologies for having misread the article at first.
