Alexandre Aja Guiding "Jimmy"



Alexandre Aja is set to helm an English-language big screen adaptation of Didier Van Cauwalaert's novel "The Gospel According to Jimmy."

Noticed for his works in horror genre, Alexandre Aja now is heading towards different turn for the first time. Variety learned that the 28-year-old filmmaker has been assigned to helm "The Gospel According to Jimmy", an English-language big screen adaptation of the Didier Van Cauwalaert's acclaimed novel.

Rights to the book were recently obtained by Alexandre Films, a French production company owned by Aja's father, Alexandre Arcady. The story revolves around a pool cleaner in Los Angeles who shockingly finds out that he is in fact a clone of Jesus, made from DNA taken from the Shroud of Turin.

Aja, a native of Paris, France, first tried his hand at directing through a short film feature "Over the Rainbow" which was nominated for Golden Palm Award in Best Short Film category at the 1997 Cannes Film Festival. His next work, "Into the Mirror", will start production in January.
