The movie version of Dan Simmons' Hyperion has found its director: Scott Derrickson, the man who helped Keanu Reeves make the Earth Stand Still in last year's remake. Should we be afraid?
According to Variety, Derrickson will direct Hyperion Cantos, which combines the first two novels in the Hyperion series. The script will be written by Trevor Sands, who also recently completed work on the proposed movie version of The Six Million Dollar Man, which doesn't sound too promising, but I'm willing to be convinced.
