Tarsem Singh Looks To Direct 'Eye In The Sky'

By AMC March 28, 2012

Filmmaker Tarsem Singh ("Immortals," "Mirror Mirror") continues to push himself visually in each one of the movies that he directs. Now he's looking to possibly top himself with a movie that he says requites 62 parts titled "Eye in the Sky." The only problem about all of this is the fact that Singh isn't even actually directing this project. FilmDistrict has Oliver Hirschbiegel ("Downfall") to direct off the script written by Guy Hibbert.

Despite this fact, Singh argues as to why he's the best guy to be in the director's chair for this picture:

"It's about a drone attack, and what it means to the people playing with their thumbs in Nevada, what it means to the people saying, 'Go ahead and strike,' what it means to other politicians at war in Europe, and what it means to the people on the ground where it happens [in East Africa]. There are people who become collateral damage around the globe in a lot of ways. It's a really contemporary, emotional piece."

"I would like to make this kind of film, but unless it's a very big movie or a very small movie, it's tough. There doesn't seem to be a problem doing a $120 million dollar movie, but that middle area is wiped out, especially if you don't want to use the same five actors everyone wants to work with."

It'll be interesting to see whether or not FilmDistrict decides to replace Hirschbiegel with Singh, and apparently the production company isn't even waiting to see whether or not "Mirror Mirror" does well in the box office before they make their decision.

Tarsem Singh's "Mirror Mirror" will be out in AMC Theatres on March 30th.
