Vincenzo Natali to direct Tunnels

Splice director Vincenzo Natali is reportedly on board to helm family adventure film Tunnels.


Relativity Media is eyeing the film as the start of a potential franchise, reports Variety.


Tunnels is based on Roderick Gordon and Brian Williams’s children’s book of the same name and follows a teenage boy who travels to a subterranean world ruled by an evil race called the Styx.


Two sequels to the book are to be published in the US this spring.
