Lynne Ramsay is directing a new sci-fi film loosely based on Moby Dick by Herman Melville.

The film will be called Mobius and will take place in space, rather than at sea, and “Mobius” is an alien instead of a whale. In the movie, a captain will take his crew on an ego-driven mission in order to control an engimatic alien.

Ramsay will co-write the script with her regular collaborator Rory Kinnear. The project will be produced and fincancied by Scott Steindorff and his company Scott Pictures. Ramsay will co-produce.

Ramsay is also starting filming on a western called Jane Got a Gun starring Natalie Portman and Michael Fassbender in January.
