Another day another adaptation. Warner Bros. is moving forward with their adaptation of Dan Simmons' sci-fi novels by picking up Scott Derrickson to direct. By combining Hyperion and The Fall of Hyperion, the studio plans to have a single film titled Hyperion Cantos.
Scott Derrickson to Direct Hyperion
To be scripted by Trevor Sands, Hyperion Cantos is set in the distant future, as a space war threatens Hyperion, a planet known for the Time Tombs -- large artifacts that can move through time and are guarded by a gruesome monster called the Shrike.
If you recognize the name Derrickson, this is the same director that recently gave us the remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still. He is also attached to direct Paradise Lost at Warner Bros.
