Deadpool Director Tim Miller To Helm Adaptation Of Joe Haldeman's Seasons

It was originally believed that visual effects artist Tim Miller would be making his feature directorial debut with Deadpool, a film based on the much-loved loud-mouthed mercenary comic book anti-hero played by Ryan Reynolds, but given that project hasn't moved an inch in a long while it looks like another movie has caught his eye. The filmmaker is now attached to helm Seasons, a new science-fiction project based on a novella written by Joe Haldeman.

Deadline reports that the story follows a group of scientists as they board a space ship to visit an alien world. Unfortuantely, the world is filled with "sentient humanoids" and everything goes to hell in a hand-basket. Sebastian Gutierrez, who is best known for writing and directing movies like Women In Trouble, Elektra Luxx and Girl Walks Into A Bar, is handling the screenplay while Michael De Luca (Moneyball, Fright Night) is set to produce. Sony Pictures is behind the film, having made a deal to acquire the rights to the story.

While Miller has played a visual effects role in many films of the last two decades, including films like X-Men, X2, Night At The Museum and Where The Wild Things Are, his most notable work is probably the mind-blowing opening credits sequence for David Fincher's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (which I like to refer to as a James Bond credit sequence loaded on black tar heroin). If he can bring those kind of skills to the table for Seasons we should be in for a treat.
