Yep, it's another this-guy-might-do-something story, so bear with us. We know. That being said, it involves Brad Bird, the geek fave behind "The Incredibles" and of course, the smash hit "Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol." And while that film is kind a bummer because it peaks right in the middle, the entire Burj Khalifa sequence was one of the best, most thrilling action sequences of the year. And so when Bird decides to show interest in a monster movie, we're all ears.

Ah Hollywood -- a magical place where a project can change hands a half dozen times before being locked down. In this case, Warner Bros. "Here There Be Monsters" is the culprit, and the studio is now in talks with Robert Zemeckis to direct, The Wrap reports. Paul Greengrass most recently took an interest in the project, but he appears to have moved on (hopefully to better things?). Brian Helgeland, whose two most recently produced credits were the underperforming "Green Zone" and the coldly received "Robin Hood", is set to write the film, which would follow a disgraced British Naval officer who is hired by a rich shipping magnate to investigate the disappearance of his merchant ships in the North Atlantic, only to discover a giant sea serpent is the culprit. We've got faith in Helgeland though, especially since the former Oscar winner ("L.A. Confidental") has turned in a "Cleopatra" script for Steven Soderbergh a while back, and more recently, found a home for his Robinson biopic with Legendary Pictures.
