Earlier this month it was reported that TV director Jack Bender, famous for his stint on Lost, will navigate towards the world of feature films once again with a reboot of Tom Clancy’s famed Jack Ryan character.
Now, Heat Vision reports that Bender has signed on to direct 7 Minutes in Heaven for Paramount.
The original idea comes from the director himself and is based around the teen makeout game of the same name. However, the focus is on two teens who go into a closet and find all their friends dead when they come back out.
7 Minutes in Heaven will be produced through Bad Robot and distributed by Paramount. A writer for the script has yet to be named.
This announcement adds to Bad Robot’s growing list of projects to do. The production shingle recently picked up the graphic novel Boilerplate as well as an untitled diamond heist project and a potential collaboration between J.J. Abrams and South Korean director Bong Joon-ho (Mother, The Host). But first is the comedy Morning Glory starring Rachel McAdams and Harrison Ford. It arrives in theaters on November 12.
