A reverse-G vortex is something we all worry about, and now they’re going to make a movie about it, with Deadline reporting DJ Caruso is in talks to direct. What do you mean you don’t know what a reverse-G vortex is? It’s when gravity is reversed – an everyday fear, I’m sure you’ll agree.
The film is called Invertigo, with gravity going haywire after a NASA satellite crash-lands in New York City. The whole world is in peril unless a rescue mission succeeds. It’s planned as a big scale movie with a script by Ehren Kruger.
Caruso’s last dip into sci-fi was the rather lacklustre I Am Number Four, and to be honest the basic plot of Invertigo doesn’t make it sound like it’s going to be a lot better, but we’ll reserve judgement.
