AURORA: Kathryn Bigelow Sets Up New Dystopian Thriller At Netflix
I’m hoping we’ll hear more soon on the 2020-announced Green Hornet redux that screenwriter and author David Koepp was attached to write at the time. Meanwhile, it’s worth discussing his latest effort now with everyone’s favorite Point Break director, Kathryn Bigelow, who is adapting Koepp’s upcoming novel, Aurora.
Set to publish on June 7 from HarperCollins, Aurora “follows characters who are coping with the collapse of the social order, set against a catastrophic worldwide power crisis.” per the logline via Netflix on Thursday this week. Bigelow, the Academy Award winning helmer of films also including The Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty and Detroit, will also produce the film alongside Greg Shapiro, Gavin Polone and Koepp, who is also credited for penning Stephen Soderbergh’s pandemic thriller, Kimi.
Sidebar: Kimi slaps. It’s on HBO Max or wherever purchase or stream movies. Check it out as a double feature with Point Break (1991) if you like.
