The Leviathan -- Teaser
Ruairi Robinson creates some amazing science fiction effects for this teaser for The Leviathan and has racked up a serious amounts of views. Due to its success, he now has two big names on board to create a full length film.
'Neill Blomkamp, director of District 9, has signed on as an executive producer, and Simon Kinberg, producer of the latest X-Men movie, has signed on as a producer, according to Deadline.'
'In the short version of The Leviathan released last week, the story took place in a future where human slaves harvest "exotic matter" from the eggs of huge species, apparently including a giant space whale. Aside from the striking visuals and fairly novel world, the short also gives off a bit of an Alien vibe. It seemingly isn't about a gorgeous, idyllic future in space — it's about forgotten workers who have to do the awful and dangerous job of harvesting that "exotic matter." The script is written by Jim Uhls, who adapted the screenplay for Fight Club. With the team now surrounding Robinson, it's hard to imagine studios not paying attention. "Could not hope for a better team to do this movie with," Robinson writes on Twitter.' See more about the story here.
