Put yourself in Lynne Ramsey’s shoes for a moment. You just finished writing and directing ‘We Need to Talk About Kevin.’ You could probably have your pick of great scripts to direct now, but you decide you want to write something for yourself. What do you do?
Space Moby Dick.
‘Mobius’ apparently follows the idea of a captain obsessed with hunting down a creature, but, you know, in space. I actually think this could be interesting if done with the same emotional level of Kevin. Russ already discussed two competing Moby Dick Films, so a cool sci-fi version is ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY.
Even though this is a Futurama episode, which is actually named ‘Mobius Dick.’ Here’s an awesome fan made trailer.
