Tron director Joe Kosinski teaming with Scott Free for sci-fi epic Archangels

Jul. 14, 2010by: Paul Tassi

Despite his debut film not even coming out until December, TRON LEGACY’s Joe Kosinski is already being hyped as the next big up-and-coming director, which would make him 2010’s Neill Blomkamp I suppose.

Kosinksi is already set to helm OBLIVION, which is sadly not based on the Bethesda game, but rather a graphic novel, but he has his sights set on another project already. According to Heat Vision, he’s teaming with Scott Free (Ridley and Tony’s company) for ARCHANGELS, a sci-fi action movie.

The script is set in the near future and is described as a “Bourne"-style thriller crossed with alien elements. The protagonist is part of an elite force that is tasked with tracking aliens who get past Earth’s defense system.

I wonder how long we’ll keep using the phrase “Bourne”-style to describe every action movie with a shaky cam?

It sounds like a relatively generic concept for a sci-fi film, but under a capable director it could be cool I’m sure. The script is from newcomer Andrew Will, which is a gamble, but hey, at least it’s got a cool title going for it.

Extra Tidbit: I'm surprised they didn't go with "Bourne meets Avatar!"

Damn!

Well, looks like I'll have to rewrite my short film. I was working on a similar concept with a better title...

So the Bourne dude is an alien and doesn't know it, is accused of being an alien and denies it but learns he is by the end of the movie, or gains sympathy for an alien and is tasked with protecting it.

this short description does not state that the aliens look like regular people, so it's too early to expect a Blade Runner rip-off. Right now it sounds more like MIB

replace "alien" with "replicant" and you got blade runner.
shit, replace alien with russian spy and you got that old kevin costner movie... sort of.
or just keep it how it is and it can be one of several characters from BSG
