Just as his filmmaker buddy David Gordon Green did before him, Jeff Nichols is now sitting on the type of project that will see him bring out his inner geek. Having mentioned in an interview that he hopes to bring out some ’80s John Carpenter, Nicholas is moving into sci-fi drama after having successfully mastered subgenres in Shotgun Stories, Take Shelter and more recently, Mud.
Gist: A father and son go on the run after the dad learns his child possesses special powers.
Release Date: Currently filming with post-production to begin later this month, Nichols could in fact spend a great deal of time in post pushing WB to date this for 2015. We’re hoping for a late in the race showing.
