Man of Steel star Michael Shannon is teaming back up with director Jeff Nichols to bring us a new sci-fi film. The two worked together on Take Shelter, in which Shannon gave one of the best performances of his career.
The movie is set up at Warner Bros. As of right now there's no title or detailed information on what the story is about. The only thing we have to go off of at this point is a description that calls it a "present day sci-fi chase film."
This will be Nichols' first big studio film. The last movie he made was called Mud, with Matthew McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon, and it was fantastic! If you haven't seen Take Shelter or Mud, I suggest you take the time to see them. Nichols is a talented director, I like his style of storytelling and filmmaking. He and Shannon also make an amazing team. I know this project that they're developing is going to be a good one.
