It’s not 100% original, but still… it’s not based on a book, or a graphic novel or a 1980’s toy line or a cartoon. To me, right now, that’s good enough. Hungarian director Benedek Fliegauf is set to direct Womb. It will be his first English-language film.

The premise, a science fiction love story/drama about a woman who clones her dead husband, is actually quite promising. And while I don’t have much more information than that, it can be taken in several interesting directions. Matt Smith (the next Time Lord) plays the deceased/cloned husband, and the wife is played by the excellent and brain-fryingly hot Eva Green (Casino Royale, The Golden Compass).

There’s vast potential here, in terms of ethical and moral discussions, visual effects, and plot developments. And if this was being produced by Fox and directed by Roland Emmerich, I’d immediately abandon all hope. But since it’s from the European production team behind Waltz With Bashir, we may well end up with something worthwhile.

Damn you, Eva, for your piercing eyes and interesting film choices. Stop giving me hope!


Hypnotic, no?
