Marina Antunes [Celluloid 03.23.15] scifi action adventure



On Tuesday of last week, the internet exploded with Ruairi Robinson' The Leviathan, a spectacular three and a half minutes of awesome which Robinson laboured over for 16 hour days for over a year to create – without promise of a payday at the end of the journey. Just a hope.

The work has paid off in spades.


Deadline is reporting that X-Men writer and producer Simon Kinberg and writer/director Neill Blomkamp have both signed onto Robinson's movie as executive producers and since Kinberg has a first look deal at Fox, this could well turn into the studio's next big sci-fi extravaganza.


It's not the first time a web video has netted a filmmaker a gig and really, it's a bit surprising that Robinson, with the success he's had so far, is only now getting big Hollywood attention. Either way, we can rejoice that Robinson will get to make his Moby Dick in space movie (which he's described more as "Jaws plus Wages of Fear multiplied by Alien").


Stay tuned for more updates on this story and if you still haven't seen The Leviathan the time is now! Sit back, turn up the volume, and enjoy.

Good for him! I cannot wait to see what we get from him now that he'll have a team and a budget.

Looks like another left wing propaganda flick pretending to be a science fiction movie.
