Rupert Sanders

While Kristen Stewart remains off the radar as the media contemplates her next move, the other man Rupert Sanders continues to rebound. Just last week he was linked as a possible helmer for the Tom Cruise starring "Van Helsing," and now a sci-fi flick has crossed his desk.

Sanders is attached to helm "The Juliet," which as you might guess, is a romance, but one that is set in the near future. It's based on the short story by cult sci-fi writer Alfred Bester, and while a dig to find out any more story details turned up fruitless, according to Automatic Pictures who seem to be (or were) involved in some capacity, it's “Bonnie and Clyde in space.”  Okay then. Henry Bean ("The Believer," "Internal Affairs") wrote the script, and New Regency and Sony execs will high five each other and bring it to the big screen.

It's certainly intriguing, so we'll be curious to see how this develops, and the genre is an itch Sanders has been wanting to scratch. Earlier this summer he revealed that he was working on a sci-fi flick that was essentially "Battle of Algiers" but in outer space. Could this be the same project? We doubt it -- there's not much romance in Gillo Pontecorvo's classic -- but perhaps this project will help him leap over to that one. "The Juliet" is moving fast, with plans to shoot this spring.

    the scandal has nothing to do with sanders being given a project.... i just hope that he will try his best to be a good husband of ross and father of their children (no more hooking up with the likes of stewart and others)

    It's funny how the Sanders/KStew affair revolves around David Fincher's world. KStew was obviously in Panic Room... Rupert Sanders is married to Liberty Ross (sister of Atticus Ross - Social Network/Dragon Tattoo composer).
