Studio 8 To Adapt Ken Liu's Sci-Fi Action Short Story, THE HIDDEN GIRL


According to Deadline, short story author Ken Liu is something of a feat to keep an eye on for the next few years. He's since been an award-winner with titles such as the Hugo winning 2012 publication, "Mono no Aware", and the multi-award Spring 2015 print, "The Grace of Kings", and now he's making headway toward the big screen thanks in large part to the efforts of Studio 8.

For this, we look toward next year's print, The Hidden Girl, which is described as a story with tones similar to that of Christopher Nolan's Interstellar, and Ang Lee's Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. The premise? Well, plot info is mininal at the moment while what is known is that the story revolves around a team of assassins capable of interdimensional travel.

I don't know about you, but I read the above paragraphs and unless we're given a closer look, I can't help but picture a hybrid-vision between both Michelle Yeoh/Zhang Ziyi fights in Lee's film and that of Thor and Malekith in Thor: The Dark World. That's some pretty epic action sequencing right there and I'm all for it if all things go according to plan for a worthwhile movie and whatever comes of it.

Studio 8's Jeff Robinov will produce, with Chris Goldberg and Rishi Rajani executive producing while a director will be sought after, as well as a cast. This should be interesting to observe for the coming months so stay tuned!
