Scott Derrickson, who helmed last year's remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still, is sticking to the sci-fi genre. He will direct Hyperion Cantos for Warner Bros. and GK Films.
The film will combine two novels written by sci-fi author Dan Simmons into a single script. The storyline is set in the distant future, amid a space war on the planet Hyperion. Hyperion has Time Tombs, which are large artifacts that move through time and space and are watched over by a monster called The Shrike. No further information about the film is currently available.
