Alfred Bester’s sci-fi tale to get big screen treatment…

Jordan Vogt-Roberts (‘The Kings of Summer’) has reportedly entered into talks to take the helm of ‘The Stars My Destination,’ an adaptation of the classic sci-fi novel by Alfred Bester.

The book, first published in 1957, tells of Gully Foyle, the lone survivor of the Nomad, a space vessel crippled and nearly destroyed in a battle. After six months of waiting for rescue, a passing spaceship, the Vorga, ignores his distress beacon and abandons him. Enraged, Gully finds new purpose – revenge.

Vogt-Roberts is currently busy prepping Legendary and Universal’s King Kong origins epic, ‘Kong: Skull Island,’ which stars Tom Hiddleston, Michael Keaton, and J.K. Simmons. The filmmakers is also attached to the big screen take of Hideo Kojima’s hit videogame series ‘Metal Gear Solid.’
