Joe Johnston To Helm Chinese Co-Prod Space Actioner, STARFALL

Captain America: The First Avenger director Joe Johnston is the latest to begin benefiting from a newly-announced setup at Qingdao Movie Metropolis complex. According to an earlier report at Deadline this week, his next film will be an action thriller titled Starfall from a script by David Coggeshall, and with Lorenzo Di Bonaventura, Erik Howsam and Infinity Pictures’ Dede Nickerson producing.

The film’s plot is reportedly under wraps but is said to take place on a space station. With the new movie studio stretching as far as 56,000 square feet of green screen space and a budget to the tune of a $100 million dollars, Starfall sounds just like the kind of project befitting of Johnston whose VFX credits date as far back as the first Star Wars trilogy, and directing credits which also include The Rocketeer, Jumanji and Jurassic Park 3.

Chinese multinational conglomerate Wanda Group will be joined in co-financing Starfall along with Lionsgate and China Media Capital-backed Infinity Pictures, two of a raft of companies listed in the newly announced film alliance.
