DJ Caruso In talks For Invertigo
He may tackle the sci-fi drama

DJ Caruso In talks For Invertigo

His last shot at science fiction, I Am Number Four, may not quite have taken off at the box office the way he would have liked, but that’s not stopping DJ Caruso from looking to add another high concept film to his stockpile of possible projects: he’s in talks to direct Invertigo for Sony.

When we saw the title, we thought it might be some take on Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo, which conjured visions of the enraged filmmaker’s ghost trying to throttle Caruso for messing with his work again after the less-than-subtle nods to Rear Window in Disturbia.

But no, this is in fact a big budget movie written by Transformers: Dark Of The Moon scribe Ehren Kruger, alongside Brandon Camp, about a NASA satellite crashing in New York and creating something called a reverse-G vortex which means that gravity is reversed and the whole planet is in danger. Only Bruce Willis can save us all… Wait, no… that’s Armageddon.

Still, if Caruso makes a deal to take on the movie, he’ll be working on it for a while as Deadline reports that it’ll involve a lot of pre-and-post-production, plus a big shoot, so he may not start filming until next year. Meanwhile, he’s just finished work on low-budget passion project Goat Island and is now looking for a distributor.
