D.J. Caruso To Helm Sci-Fi Disaster Pic 'Invertigo,' Set For March 7, 2014 Release

The Playlist By Benjamin Wright | The Playlist March 30, 2012 at 12:19PM

The story of excitable, if journeyman-level director D.J. Caruso is a long one, with him starting off his career with moodier fare like “The Salton Sea” and the far less impressive “Taking Lives,” before eventually delving into young-adult-prone projects like “Vertigo,” “Eagle Eye,” and last year's “I Am Number Four.” He’s continuing that string of films with the Val Kilmer, Radha Mitchell, Kate Maberly, Chandler Canterbury, and Annalise Basso-starring “The Goat Island,” his passion project indie, which he's just locked and will be showing to distributors. But he won't be sitting idle for long, as Caruso has lined up his next movie pretty quickly.

D.J. Caruso

The story of excitable, if journeyman-level director D.J. Caruso is a long one, with him starting off his career with moodier fare like “The Salton Sea” and the far less impressive “Taking Lives,” before eventually delving into young-adult-prone projects like “Vertigo,” “Eagle Eye,” and last year's “I Am Number Four.” He’s continuing that string of films with the Val Kilmer, Radha Mitchell, Kate Maberly, Chandler Canterbury, and Annalise Basso-starring “The Goat Island,” his passion project indie, which he's just locked and will be showing to distributors. But he won't be sitting idle for long, as Caruso has lined up his next movie pretty quickly.

Deadline report that Caruso will be taking the director’s chair for “Invertigo,” a sci-fi epic with a script by fanboy punching bag Ehren Kruger ("Transformers") and Bradley Cramp about a NASA satellite that crash-lands in New York City, creating a “reverse-G vortex” where gravity on earth becomes inverted. If a planned rescue attempt fails, then our planet is doomed. Original Films' Neal Moritz is on board to produce, with Daniel Bobkur and Cramp executive-producing, in what is sounding a lot like “Armageddon” by way of “Deep Impact,” only with a satellite instead of a meteor. 

And this one is moving fast. THR reports that Sony has already slated the movie with a March 7, 2014 release date. We’re sure we’ll be hearing about the casting of this one fairly quickly.
