Off the recent success of District 9, website io9 caught up with Oscar-nominated writer Terri Tatchell who revealed that she’s working on feature film version of Trevor Cawood’s insane short “Terminus”, while also giving some brief hope on District 9 sequel potential. Read on for the skinny. District 9 is currently in the running for the Academy Award for Film Editing, Visual Effects, Writing [Adapted Screenplay] and Best Film.
“The film I’m working on now is an adaptation of a short film called Terminus,” she tells io9. “It’s a bit more science fiction, fantasy. It’s about a stone creature that follows this stressed-out guy around, just stressing him more and more. It was incredibly well received, and the director that created it, [Trevor Cawood] hasn’t done a feature yet, and he’s really talented. I approached him about writing a feature script of that. It’s been a little more challenging than I expected it to be. I’m probably on my second draft now. I’m not ready to send it off yet, but we’ll see.”
Watch the short below. It’s pretty incredible.
