Space Moby Dick: The Movie is actually happening

Call me Spaceman Ishmael! The next movie from We Need to Talk About Kevin scribes Lynne Ramsay and Rory Kinnear just got backed by Scott Pictures. Which means, we're one big step closer to seeing Captain Ahab chase down a space whale in the big black sky. Officially titled Mobius, this movie is based off the classic Herman Melville work.

The Hollywood Reporter describes Mobius as a "psychological action thriller set in deep space, a captain consumed by revenge takes his crew on a death mission fueled by his own ego and will to control an enigmatic alien." Can't wait to see if they give Ahab a futuristic peg leg made out of alien skulls!
