There is no doubt that Alex Garland is a great writer, penning the scripts for 28 DAYS LATER, NEVER LET ME GO and writing the novel THE BEACH, but how will cut it as a director?
It looks like we will be finding out soon, as it has been announced that he’s set to direct EX MACHINA. DNA Films, who have collaborated with Garland on pretty much every project he has been in, are set to produce the project alongside Scott Rudin and Eli Bush.
Garland also wrote the film that tells the story of a billionaire programmer who picks a young employee to spend a week at his estate and ends up participating in a test involving his latest invention: an artificially intelligent female robot. With the producers of the film hoping for a $15 million budget, he’s definitely chose a good ‘un to make his debut.
