Timur Bekmambetov will be revisiting superpowered assassins with his sequel to Wanted, but he's already looking to his next project, a contemporary adaptation of Moby Dick. But this being Bekmambetov, his whales and whale hunters will have their own superpowers.
Universal Pictures bought Bekmambetov's reimagining of Herman Melville's classic last fall, and the director promised an action-packed update in keeping with his previous films. But in a recent interview with MTV, Bekmambetov revealed a supernatural component to his plan:
The concept is if we're talking about a creature with supernatural abilities, Moby Dick, then every whaler will have supernatural abilities, too. Something. They can fly. I don't know, they can bend bullets, whatever.
