The King’s Speech and Wolf Hall financier Hindsight Media (previously known as Prescience) has nabbed rights to sci-fi movie spec Anima, Deadline reports.
While plot details are being kept under wraps, the thriller follows a prisoner who is sentenced to solitary confinement on a remote asteroid.
It’s being pitched as in the vein of Moon and Ex Machina.
Swedish directing duo Fredrik Akerstrom and Marcus Kryler, known for directing hit video game Battlefield 1 are attached to direct the script from Steve Isles (The Possession Of David O’Reilly).
Hindsight Media CEO James Swarbrick (The Last Days On Mars) will produce alongside Water & Power Production’s Tom Miller (Aaaaaaaah!) as well as Jon Kanak (Slumber), who reps both the writer and the directors.
The team is eying a fall production start.
