Very few times I can honestly say that my jaw dropped…literally, while watching a trailer, today is one of those days. Academy Award-nominee Ruairí Robinson (The Last Days on Mars) has released a 3-minute tease into his concept for the movie The Leviathan which he hopes will spark enough interest that studios come banging on his door with bags of money in hand.
Here’s a synopsis for the film:
By the early 22nd century, mankind had colonized many worlds. Faster than light travel was made possible by harvesting exotic matter from the eggs of the largest species mankind has ever seen. Those that take part in the hunt are mostly involuntary labor.
Sounds very Dune-ish! Robinson took to his Twitter page to release concept art by Jim Murray (creature design by Jordu Schell), one of the principal designers of the Na’vi for Avatar. Let’s hope we get to see this vision on screen in the coming years!
