Australian filmmaker Shane Abbess (Gabriel) will direct 7th Day, a sci-fi thriller that Source Code scribe Ben Ripley is writing for the Dino De Laurentiis Co.
The script, which concerns a voyage to establish a new colony in outer space, is based on an original story by Abbess and Ripley.
De Laurentiis described the story as The Shining on a spaceship.
Prexy of production Lorenzo De Maio will oversee the project for Dino De Laurentiis Co., which is still developing a reimagining of Barbarella, as well as remakes of Stephen King adaptations Firestarter and Maximum Overdrive.
Other projects include a supernatural thriller based on Richard Kadrey’s “Sandman Slim” series.
