Andrew Stanton (Wall-E, Finding Nemo) is set to direct Searchlight Pictures’ upcoming epic sci-fi drama “In the Blink of an Eye.”
According to THR, the project seeks to explore no less than the entire history of the world and tackle the nature of life, love, hope and connection, doing so by focusing on three intersecting storylines. Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, and Paul Thomas Anderson’s Magnolia are the watchwords.
The original screenplay, which was featured on the 2017 Black List, is written by Colby Day (Spaceman). Day will also act as an exec producer.
Jared Ian Goldman (Ingrid Goes West, Russian Doll) is producing.
Senior vp production Taylor Friedman and creative executive Apolline Berty are overseeing for Searchlight, reporting to heads of production and development Katie Goodson-Thomas and DanTram Nguyen.
