Brits Are The Future Of Sci-Fi, Gilbey Will Direct An Alien Safari Movie Called Offworld
The future of science fiction seems to be almost entirely in the hands of Great Britain these days. What’s the only significant science fiction program still on television? Doctor Who. Who are the most promising, up and coming sci-fi filmmakers? Duncan Jones (Moon) and Gareth Edwards (Monsters). Both British. And maybe add fellow Brit Julian Gilbey to that list.
Gilby directed a little chase thriller called A Lonely Place To Die which has garnered enough attention to earn him a big, sci-fi project. Empire says he’s been signed to direct Offworld, a film being described as a “pedal-to-the-metal safari movie set on an alien planet. There’s lots of nasty creatures – some even on the good guys’ side.”
