Cult horror director to make mysterious new space movieS

Juan Antonio Bayona, director of The Impossible and the 2007 horror hit The Orphanage, has signed on to direct Warner Bros.' untitled new sci-fi flick. Details are scarce, other than it'll be written by Eric Roth, who wrote the scripts for Forrest Gump and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, and produced by Kevin McCormick, who did The Gangster Squad and The Lucky One. Rumor has it the film will actually be set in space, which happens rarely enough we're already excited for the movie, although naming the extremely talented Bayona as director helps. More as it develops.
