‘Immortals’ Director Takes on ‘Killing On Carnival Row’

Apparently Immortals is pretty badass, so I believe we should be ecstatic that Tarsem Singh has been locked in to direct Killing On Carnival Row, reports Deadline.

The script comes from Travis Beacham who has gone on to pen Clash of the Titans, Pacific Rim, the Disney remake Black Hole, and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

The script takes place in the future in a city called the Burgue, which looks a lot like 18th Century London. It is inhabited by humans and other creatures (like vampires), and a serial killer is on the loose.

The Kopelsons, who originally set it at New Line, have gotten close to making the film with Guillermo Del Toro and Neil Jordan, but they feel that Singh will put them over the top.

Production on the noir-style fantasy thriller is expected to begin next June in New Orleans.
