Kathryn Bigelow, the first female director to win an Oscar, is preparing to shoot her new movie 5 years after her latest feature “Detroit”.
Oscar-winner Kathryn Bigelow has officially announced her next project. It was announced by The Hollywood Reporter that Bigelow will shoot his new feature film “Aurora” for Netflix.
The script of the film will be adapted from the novel of the same name, published last June, by David Koepp, the screenwriter of films such as “Jurassic Park”, “Spider-Man”, and “Mission Impossible”. Koepp will write the script for the project, which is produced by Greg Shapero and Gavin Polone.
Bigelow, who won the Best Director Oscar for the movie “The Hurt Locker” in 2010 and is the first female director to win this award in Oscar history, most recently directed the feature film “Detroit” in 2017. In the past five years, Kathryn Bigelow has directed only the short film “I Am Not A Weapon” and the commercial “Apple iPhone 13 Pro: Hollywood in Your Pocket”.
“Aurora” follows the story of Aubrey Wheeler, who lives in the town of Aurora, Illinois, and tries to make a living leaving her rebellious teenage son behind after her delinquent ex-husband leaves. But the main story of the movie begins with a solar storm that causes electricity to go out all over the world.
It is also reported that the production budget of the project, which will be implemented under the production of Netflix, is determined as 100 million dollars.
