There’s quite the influx of science fiction films in the works currently, and a lot of them are starring Tom Cruise. He’s in ‘All You Need Is Kill’ and ‘Oblivion’, but there’s also ‘After Earth, ‘Ender’s Game’, ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’, and much more coming our way. Now, Disney is pulling something together to contribute to the pile, which is extra interesting since they recently let go of ‘Tron: Legacy’ director Joseph Kosinski’s ‘Oblivion’ and passed it on to Universal.
According to Variety, Disney has hired ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ co-writer Nicole Perlman to write ‘Terra Incognita’, a sci-fi project based on an original pitch. ‘Tron: Legacy’ producer Justin Springer has also been tapped to produce.
There are no details on the plot or anything else related to the film, however, in Latin, the title translates to “unknown land”, so maybe it’ll have something to do with space. Naturally, that’s purely speculation, but once more details emerge, we’ll be sure to share them with you.
Though people were a little down on recent Disney sci-fi flick ‘John Carter’ (which I still don’t understand why because I liked it, but to each their own), at least this is an original project, which is something rare these days among the sea of remakes, adaptations, and sequels.
