Sinister Director to Take on POSTMORTAL

Sinister director Scott Derrickson has put another film project on his plate called The Postmortal. It's based on a book written by Drew Magary. The story follows a man who decides to go though a treatment known as "the Cure," which protects him from natural aging, but he can still get sick and die, or be mortally wounded. This seems like a really interesting concept that would make for a fun movie. Here's the description of the book:

John Farrell is about to get "The Cure."
Old age can never kill him now.
The only problem is, everything else still can . . .
Imagine a near future where a cure for aging is discovered and-after much political and moral debate-made available to people worldwide. Immortality, however, comes with its own unique problems-including evil green people, government euthanasia programs, a disturbing new religious cult, and other horrors. Witty, eerie, and full of humanity, The Postmortal is an unforgettable thriller that envisions a pre-apocalyptic world so real that it is completely terrifying.

I think Derrickson is a talented director. I like most of the films he's worked on, and he's currently working on the demonic cop thriller Beware The Night.
