Singh getting 'Unforgettable' job
EmptyDirector Tarsem Singh is set to return to the studio world with "The Unforgettable," a science fiction thriller from Warner Bros. Pictures being produced by Basil Iwanyk, David Goyer and Jason Hall.
"Unforgettable," originally titled "Species X," centers on a cop who in the course of a murder investigation realizes that he is not human and uncovers a war between good and evil aliens.
The project is based on the Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment video game "The Condemned: Criminal Origins," which Hall and Nathan Hendrickson created. Hall most recently was senior vp WBIE and oversaw such games as "300: March to Glory," "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" and "The Matrix Online."
Kurt Sutter wrote the screenplay.
Lynn Harris and Matt Reilly are overseeing for the studio.
Singh was one of the music video world's bright lights when he made 2000's "The Cell," a crime fantasy starring Jennifer Lopez and Vince Vaughn. Although the movie received a critical drubbing, it was noted for its cutting-edge visuals and scenes inspired by famous works of art.
His first movie since "Cell" was "The Fall," an India-U.K.-U.S. co-production that debuted last year at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Singh is repped by CAA.
