Things aren’t going to be going to well for Sandra Bullock, as she’s heading off into a post-apocalyptic future in Bird Box, which has just been snapped up by the streaming service, Netflix. Susanne Bier is set to direct the movie, from a screenplay by Eric Heisserer (The Arrival), according to THR.
The film is ‘Based on a 2014 novel by Josh Malerman, the story is set in the near future, where a mother (Bullock) and her two young children are among a small group of survivors after a mysterious alien force has driven the world’s population to deadly violence. The three must make their way on a terrifying journey – 20 miles in a rowboat – while blindfolded, with nothing to rely on but the mother’s wits and the children’s trained ears.’
Nope, doesn’t sound like Sandra gonna be having much fun!
The current plan is to start shooting the film in August. It should arrive on Netflix sometime next year.
