After Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, the world was pretty much at Rupert Wyatt’s feet, and while Fox has been urging him towards making a sequel as soon as possible, he’s been looking around at various other possibilities. Now Variety reports that he’s locked in to helm Agent 13, based on a script by newcomer T.S. Nowlin.
It’s described as an action sci-fi film, but if you want to know what it’s about you’re out of luck, as plot details are being kept under wraps. It’s safe to say that the film will involve some sort of agent though, and there’s a pretty good chance that role will be taken by Charlize Theron, who’s attached to appear in the movie.
The film doesn’t have a studio home yet, but with the director and star now attached, most of the major studio are showing interest.
