Sounds like Tarsem Singh is going back to his science fiction thriller roots in Selfless.


Deadline is reporting that Ryan Reynolds is in talks to star in Tarsem's lastest work. But we're actually more excited about the synopsis, which feels like a return to the creepy thriller feel of Tarsem's Cell.

The thriller focuses on a wealthy older man who discovers he’s dying and pays to have his mind transplanted into a younger man’s body. Turns out that body is a cadaver whose previous inhabitant was murdered. Soon, he’s hunted by killers as he tries to get to the bottom of who took him out in the first place.


Let's hope all goes through, we'd love to see Tarsem's lens on a bit more normal world with futuristic twists.
