Movie News: Alex Garland To Direct Fembot Flick, EX MACHINA

Fresh off his work on the criminally under appreciated DREDD, British screenwriter Alex Garland has landed his first directing gig, and will helm his original sci-fi script EX MACHINA for DNA Films and producers Scott Rudin & Eli Bush. Not to be confused with the comic book property of the same name (also being produced for the big-screen elsewhere), Garland’s story centres on a test subject volunteering to spend a week in the company of an artificially intelligent female robot.

That’s it for details on the $15m production for now, but considering how many great genre scripts Garland has produced over the years (SUNSHINE, NEVER LET ME GO and 28 DAYS LATER… to name but a few) we’ll definitely be keeping an eye on its progress.
