For a guy who has never directed a feature-length film, former visual effects man Tim Miller sure is getting a lot of Hollywood love. The would-be director of Ryan Reynolds “Deadpool” (no idea where that film is at the moment, and I doubt if anyone in Hollywood knows, including would-be star Ryan Reynolds) had already previously landed a new directing gig on the comic book “Gravel”. Now he’s got himself attached to direct another movie — an adaptation of Joe Haldeman’s sci-fi short story “Seasons”.
Based on “Seasons”, a short story in “The Forever War” author Joe Haldeman’s 1985 collection “Dealing In Futures”, the movie would focus on “an anthropological expedition to a planet with sentient humanoids that goes horribly awry.” Cause obviously an anthropological expedition to a planet with sentient humanoids that goes perfectly perfect would just be kinda lame.
Sony Pictures acquired rights to the story, and has set Miller to direct, with “Snakes on a Plane” writer Sebastian Gutierrez cracking out a script. Gutierrez also wrote “Gothika” with Halle Berry.
So, where does all of this leave the merc with a mouth? Who the hell knows at this point.
