What Is COLLIDER?

COLLIDER, besides being a decent movie website, is also a mysterious new project that was announced today, according to Deadline.  It's going to be directed by Edgar Wright, who will co-write the script with Mark Protosevich (I AM LEGEND), and will be produced by JJ Abrams' Bad Robot production company.

So what is COLLIDER about?  No one is saying, but I have the sneaking suspicion that at some point one object will come into physical contact with another object with sufficient force as to cause a kind of reaction.  Everyone's being sworn to secrecy, but COLLIDER will be an original science fiction film, and with Edgar Wright involved I'd imagine that he's found an interesting story to tell.

No word on how this affects THE WORLD'S END or ANT-MAN - THE WORLD'S END is scheduled to open next year and ANT-MAN sometime after, likely, so Wright just might be getting all his projects in a row insuring that he's gainfully employed for the next few years.  But now Wright fans are curious to discover what COLLIDER is all about, and I can't wait to find out.

Nordling, out.  Follow me on Twitter!
