Rupert Sanders to Direct Sci-Fi Romance 'The Juliet'
Infamous house-wrecker/'Snow White and the Huntsman' director soldiers on despite criticism/apathy

According to Deadline, "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders has agreed to helm "The Juliet," a mysterious sci-fi romance tantalizingly described as "'Bonnie and Clyde' in space." Which makes the project sound either breathtakingly brilliant or catastrophically stupid, with little margin for error. Given the film's literary genesis, the eponymous short story—which we've never heard of, let alone read—by Alfred Bester—whom we don't know—we have absolutely no idea what to expect.
What do you think, Hitlisters? Does "The Juliet" sound promising? Could it be like the lost love story between Princess Leia and Han Solo? Will it be Rupert Sanders's best work since his adulterous affair with Kristen Stewart effectively and irrevocably ruined the "Twilight" series for everybody, forever? And has anyone read the short story upon which the forthcoming movie is based? As always, let us know in the comments, or tell us on MSN Movies Facebook and MSN Movies Twitter.
