Alright, time for a bit of genre break. Two filmmakers who have both made their names on some pretty ambitious projects are lining up some gigs, so let's dive right in...

First we'll start off with Mike Cahill, the rookie of the pair, who made a splash at Sundance in 2011 with the twisty sci-fi drama "Another Earth" starring Brit Marling. Well, he's staying within that realm as he gears up "iOrigins," a story that will take place on a larger canvas. The plot centers on a doctor, on the brink of a scientific breakthrough that will have historical ramifications, who travels to India to meet a young girl who can make or break his theory. Said to be a picture that will "mine the emotional side of science," casting is currently underway, but no start date has been confirmed. Either way, it sounds pretty fascinating.

Meanwhile, Kim Jee-woon, who makes his English-language debut with the Arnold Schwarzenegger comeback vehicle "The Last Stand" next month, is ready to tackle an anime favorite. The helmer will bring a live action version of "Jin Roh: The Wolf Brigade" to the big screen. The original 1999 film by Okiura Hiroyuki is considered a stone cold classic, but nonetheless, we're pretty curious to see how Kim will approach a story set in a parallel universe where the Nazis won World War II and Japan is now a military state. This new version will be titled "Inrang," and it certainly sounds ambitious, but still a ways off as it's still in early stages. Check out the trailer for the original below. [Hollywood/Twitch]
