Have you been wondering what Louis Letterier is doing with his free time, since he’s not directing the sequel to Clash of the Titans? Don’t worry your pretty little heads, because he’s just landed a new gig according to THR. The director has been tapped to helm the sci-fi flick G for Universal Pictures.

No serious plot details for the film have been released but the studio described G as Taken mixed with The Day After Tomorrow. This makes us wonder if the premise will center on a hostage situation during a global meltdown? Many think the G in the title represents gravity, which means the plot might have something to do with it being altered. Could it deal with a hostage situation in mid-air? Just joking, we don’t know how far this will go.

Universal is currently looking for screenwriters to adapt the project, which is based on an original idea of Management 360’s Guymon Casady. Leterrier is currently working on the film Now You See Me, and once he’s done with filming the screenplay for G should be ready to go.

What do you think of Leterrier directing G? Are you interested in seeing the film?
