This dark sci-fi film is the latest short to get a movie deal
Movie studios are increasingly paying attention to what we’re watching online, especially when it comes to possible starting points for new films. Last week, sci-fi short The Leviathan scooped up Neill Blomkamp and Simon Kinberg to transform it into a full movie, and this week we’re seeing a similar story happen with a new short film called Sundays. Released earlier this week, Deadline reports that a bidding war immediately started for the right to turn it into a film. Sony, Fox, and Warner Bros. are all said to have been interested, with Warner Bros. winning out in the end. The studio is supposed to start working with director Mischa Rozema on finding writers in a couple weeks.
