Ben Stiller is set to direct an upcoming sci-fi thriller for Lionsgate titled London. Oscar Isaac is set to star in the film, which is based on a short story by The Snowman author Jo Nesbo.
The movie will be scripted by Eric Roth, the writer behind Forrest Gump, The Insider, Ali, Munich, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and A Star Is Born. The guy is a great writer, so we know the script for this movie is going to be solid.
Unfortunately, no plot details have been shared for the short story, so we have no idea what kind of story the movie will tell. But, there’s a talented creative team attached to it to bring it to life!
I hope this is a good project for Stiller, who previously helmed Tropic Thunder and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.
