According to The Hollywood Reporter, Nic Mathieu is making his directorial debut on a sci-fi-themed movie titled The Wind for Warner Bros. This little bit of news is unremarkable except for the fact that the script is written by David Koepp, who is also producing the movie as well. Not much is known about The Wind other than the story will place on a space colony.

Mathieu cut his teeth on commercials but his “strong point of view” convinced the WB brass to take a chance on him, according to the report.

As for Koepp, he has a hand in quite a few blockbusters such as Jurassic Park, Mission: Impossible, 2002's Spider-Man, and Angels & Demons, just to name a few. He is one of the people studio have on speed dial when they need help with a troubled script, like in the case with Men in Black 3 and the forthcoming Jack Ryan reboot.

Since The Hollywood Reporter didn't mention what stage the project is in, I can only guess it's still not ready to go before the camera since no cast is attached.

Another thing, the movie sounds expensive. WB has shut down production of movies like Arthur & Lancelot and Akira over concerns for their high budget, so we may read a report down the road saying that the studio has shut this one down as well.
