New Sci-Fi Thriller, Story Of Your Life, Has A Great Concept And Fresh Funding

Patrick Dane writes for Bleeding Cool

I love a good sci-fi concept and here’s a new one for us, from Ted Chiang‘s novella, Story of Your Life: A linguist is hired by the US government to decipher the language and therefore figure out the intentions of an alien race that have recently landed on earth.

That is a pretty suspenseful setup and if it goes the way I very much think it might, it could well offer a meaningful statement on our society and need to communicate, to overcome language and cultural barriers.

Deadline are reporting that Filmnation Entertainment and Lava Bear Films are to finance the film adaptation of Story of Your Life. The movie will be directed by comercial director Nic Mathieu and has been scripted by Eric Heisserer.

Heisserer has been tweeting and he is clearly excited about the project.

Filmnation’s Aaron Ryder added:

If you look at Ted Chiang’s powerful source material, how deftly Eric and the team at 21 Laps handled the adaptation, and what Nic’s vision brings to the film, it’s no surprise that there’s been so much competitive interest.

And now, I expect, film geek interest too.
