One week ago we posted an amazing short film in our Cool Videos column, showcasing Ruairi Robinson's The Leviathan. The short, while light on story, displayed some exceptional effects and camera work. The short followed that of slave labor hunting down a massive creature. Space whaling, if you will. Well, it looks as those we weren't the only ones impressed as visionary director Neill Blomkamp (CHAPPIE) and uber-producer Simon Kinberg (X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST) are looking to produce a feature-film of The Leviathan! Screenwriter Jim Uhls (FIGHT CLUB), who also penned the short, is set to pen the screenplay of which Robinson would direct.

I couldn't help but gloat about the visual aesthetics of Leviathan that harkened back to a quasi-BLADE RUNNER/PACIFIC RIM mix. There's not many sci-fi projects that pull of a future I'm interested in seeing, but The Leviathan was one of them. While sweet visuals were enough to suffice for a short film, I'm hoping that Robinson and screenwriter Jim Uhls can pull together a story that's worthy of our time. In any event, this is great news for those of us who enjoyed the short, and it looks like it's in the right hands!

Worry about making Alien 5 a good movie first. Bring this guy to help on it, but first things first.

Neil Blomkamp is lucky to still be in the good graces of movie studios following Chappie and Elysium. He needs to make Alien 5 amazing or he can worry about finding a new career instead of new projects.

Excellent! I thought that short was amazing and a society that hunts monsters like futuristic whaling is an awesome idea they should even use the monsters fat as a viable resource like of old.

Good to see Blomkamp return the favor

Nice to see him remain humble and return the favor that was done to him so many years ago.
