‘Snow White’ Director Rupert Sanders To Helm “Bonnie & Clyde In Space” Pic ‘The Juliet’

‘Snow White’ Director Rupert Sanders To Helm "Bonnie & Clyde In Space" Pic ‘The Juliet’

While Kristen Stewart remains off the radar as the media contemplates her next move, the other man Rupert Sanders continues to rebound. Just last week he was linked as a possible helmer for the Tom Cruise starring “Van Helsing,” and now a sci-fi flick has crossed his desk.

Sanders is attached to helm “The Juliet,” which as you might guess, is a romance, but one that is set in the near future. It’s based on the short story by cult sci-fi writer Alfred Bester, and while a dig to find out any more story details turned up fruitless, according to Automatic Pictures who seem to be (or were) involved in some capacity, it’s “Bonnie and Clyde in space.”  Okay then. Henry Bean (“The Believer,” “Internal Affairs“) wrote the script, and New Regency and Sony execs will high five each other and bring it to the big screen.

It’s certainly intriguing, so we’ll be curious to see how this develops, and the genre is an itch Sanders has been wanting to scratch. Earlier this summer he revealed that he was working on a sci-fi flick that was essentially “Battle of Algiers” but in outer space. Could this be the same project? We doubt it — there’s not much romance in Gillo Pontecorvo‘s classic — but perhaps this project will help him leap over to that one. “The Juliet” is moving fast, with plans to shoot this spring.

Run his butt out of town! Ok I don’t know where to begin this conversation so I’m posting here. I arrived late to the Twilight saga and only started to learn about Kristen’s affair. Get over it right?
I just want to say that Rupert took advantage of a young girl even though she was 24 ( and he 43).
He was married with two kids, far more life experience, and her boss!
At age 14-18 one boyfriend, age 18 became romantically involved with Robert, age 19 high school diploma. Age 21 bought a house with Robert 2011. But they had been together since age 18! I don’t care if Kristen "thinks" she knew what she was doing. That’s just like saying, she asked for it by the way she dresses thinking.
I’m furious as a mother and angry that the ex-wife wants to put Kristen on further notice. Rupert is no better than a pedophile as far as I am concerned. He absolutely knew better and had more life experiences to draw from NOT TO MENTION KRISTENS BOSS! It doesn’t matter the circumstances it’s always the woman’s fault. Why is that?

jessie ong

the scandal has nothing to do with sanders being given a project…. i just hope that he will try his best to be a good husband of ross and father of their children (no more hooking up with the likes of stewart and others)


KStew slept with him and he did not even help her to find a job? how ungrateful!


This guy got to bang Kristen Stewart and he gets to direct films? So lucky.


lol that's a strange line of thought my frriend…


It's funny how the Sanders/KStew affair revolves around David Fincher's world. KStew was obviously in Panic Room… Rupert Sanders is married to Liberty Ross (sister of Atticus Ross – Social Network/Dragon Tattoo composer).
