Could Marc Forster Direct Psychological Cartoon-like Fantasy ‘Imagining Nathan’?
So far, no-one has really called it director Marc Forster‘s year, after the massive kerfuffle with his adaptation of that Max Brooks novel, World War Z (the production apparently went a bit wonky, and ended up with weeks worth of reshoots and an ending rewrite) — but not Forster is looking to the future. It turns out he’s actually close to scoring a deal to make a new film called Imagining Nathan, with Disney. So, it’s not all bad for the guy.
According to /Film, Imagining Nathan sounds like a “risky, odd psychological fantasy”. They quoted The Wrap, saying the story is about main character Nathan, who suffers the loss of his parents at age six, and retreats into a fantasy world. “Fast-forward thirty years later, his sister tries to help him escape his demons. As an adult, Nathan has been diagnosed with a condition which causes him to live in a cartoon-like world.”
Now, all sounds quite interesting, up until that last sentence there, which summons up ideas of Roger Rabbit-esque shenanigans, and it leaves us pondering exactly how this is going to go. Unfortunately, that’s all you’re getting for now though, as so far, that’s all the information we have on this movie… But it’s certainly interesting, especially after the Monster Ball and Quantum of Solace director’s involvement with World War Z — which, to be fair, he probably wants to put behind him at this point. By the sounds of it though, Imagining Nathan could be one to keep an eye on, so stay tuned for any further news of Imagining Nathan.
