Tarsem Singh is certain speeding up his rating of making movies. It’s taken him 11 years to get three movies into cinemas (The Cell, The Fall, Immortals), but his fourth movie, Mirror Mirror, is coming up fast next March and now he’s already planning what he’ll do next.
Deadline reports that Tarsem has signed on to direct Killing on Carnival Row, a movie which has been in development since November 2005. Travis Beacham wrote the script, which is set in a mystical city dubbed Burgue, where both humans and bizarre creatures co-exist. However a serial killer is roaming the streets, and that needs to be sorted out. Killing on Carnival Row was the first script Beacham sold, and paved the way for his work on Clash of the Titans, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, and Pacific Rim.
Producers Arnold Kopelson and Anne Kopelson are currently in talks with a studio to finance the film, although nothing is finalised yet. They’re also hoping to shoot next June.
