Moby Dick in Space Movie Being Directed by Lynne Ramsay

Movieby Joey Paur

Lynne Ramsay is set to write and direct a new sci-fi movie called Mobius, which is basically a retelling of the classic Herman Melville novel Moby Dick, but in space. I don't know much about Ramsay's work, but it seems the one thing she's best known for making is a film called We Need to Talk About Kevin

Mobius is described as a psychological action thriller set in deep space, and follows a captain consumed by revenge. Like in the original story he takes his crew on a death mission fueled by his own ego and will to control an enigmatic alien. This sounds like it has potential to be a really good movie. I can easily see this classic story as a sci-fi space movie. It also seems like it would be a great role for any actor to take on. 

What do you think about the concept behind this film project, and who would you like see play the lead role of the Captain?
