Rupert Sanders Secures 'The Juliet' as Next Project Post-'Snow White'

The 'Snow White and the Huntsman' director has landed a job at Sony Pictures and New Regency to direct the novel-adapted fantasy movie as his follow-up project.

Hot on heels of his rumored negotiations with Universal Pictures to direct Tom Cruise in "Van Helsing (2016)", Rupert Sanders comes out with another news that he has landed a new directing job at Sony Pictures and New Regency. Deadline reports that the "Snow White and the Huntsman" helmer will next shepherd a sci-fier called "The Juliet".

Marking Sanders' first project since "Snow White", "The Juliet" is adapted from Alfred Bester's short story. According to producer Frank Beddor, the story is set in a near futuristic sci-fi landscape. "It's lovers on the run in space," he once said, "so think 'Bonnie and Clyde' in space, but with a very unique Bonnie who has a secret. The tone of it is close to the 'Bourne Identity' franchise."

While Sanders is set to work behind the lens, Henry Bean will serve as the screenwriter. Beddor will produce the film alongside Alex Gartner. The project is expected to begin production in the spring of 2013.

Sanders made his directorial debut with "Snow White", but his career was marred following his cheating scandal with the lead actress of his film Kristen Stewart. Despite his personal issue, Universal reportedly aimed to give him another try by letting him helm the "Van Helsing" reboot.

The talks with Universal, however, were said to be "still relatively casual" and were based on "a mutual interest in doing the project with one another." The British filmmaker was still expected to direct a rumored "Snow White" spinoff which was said to focus on Huntsman's story.
