Tim Blake Nelson Set to Direct a Sci-Fi Action Film Called MICHAEL ZERO
Tim Blake Nelson is best known for his acting role in films such as O Brother Where Art Thou, The Incredible Hulk, and a ton of other films. He's a great actor that takes on a lot of co-starring roles. What you may not know about him is that he's also been directing films since 1997. Films such as O, The Grey Zone, Leaves of Grass, and Anesthesia.
Now he's set to direct a sci-fi action thriller called Michael Zero for Millennium Media and Eclectic Pictures, and it's based on a spec from Adam Alleca (Last House on the Left). There's no word on if he also plans on starring in the film or not, but I hope he's in it!
The high-concept sci-fi action-thriller follows Michael Redmayne, who is forced to hunt down and kill his clones after they desert the war they were created to fight, in order to wage one of their own against the Corporate State that made them.
This is definitely a different kind of project for Nelson to helm, but I'm excited to see what he ends up doing with it. Nelson's most recent project is Joel and Ethan Coen’s TV mini-series The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, which he is starring in.
