Sci-Fi Short NOON Getting Big Screen Treatment February 5, 2013 Hollywood adapting sci-fi shot to big screen. Production banner Chernin Entertainment has acquired the feature film rights to the Kasra Farahani’s sci-fi short ‘Noon,’ reports Heat Vision. Written and directed by Farahani, a concept artist and art director on such movies as ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ and ‘Thor,’ the 12-minute short is set two centuries in the future where, due to a shift in the Earth’s axis, the Arctic is one of the only inhabitable lands left, although it is in a perpetual state of day. The short sets up the world’s unique premise and introduces our protagonist, Gray, a coyote numbed to the cruelty of the world and his part in it. Farahani is attached to direct the feature version of his short with Chernin Entertainment on the lookout for a scribe to pen the script.
