“Million Dollar Baby” scribe to write new draft of “The Juliet” sci-fi

PanARMENIAN.Net - Paul Haggis has been tapped to work on the script for The Juliet, the adaptation of Alfred Bester's short story, The Hollywood Reporter.

The Atlas Entertainment film, which will be helmed by Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, was recently moved from Sony to Warner Bros.

Charles Roven and Alex Gartner of Atlas Entertainment and Frank Beddor of Automatic Pictures are producing.

Based on Bester's story Fondly Fahrenheit, the sci-fi crime thriller is about a playboy and an android who combine to become one murderous personality. The story was first published in 1954.

The project has had several writers involved, with Henry Bean working on it first and then Brian Koppelman and David Levien.

Haggis, who wrote the screenplays for Oscar-winning films Million Dollar Baby and Crash (the latter of which he also directed), most recently wrote and directed Third Person, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival.
