This could be an interesting project. Jeff Nichols is reportedly interested in bringing us a big screen version of the true story titled The Boy Who Played With Fusion, and in case you’re not so familiar with this title – I have just one thing to say to you – shame on you, you science ignorants!
Well, here’s the thing. Nichols is in negotiations to direct the movie which is actually the true story of 14-year old boy named Taylor Wilson who was the subject of the Popular Science article.
Written by Tom Clynes earlier this year, the article centers on a very smart and curious 14-year-old Arkansas boy who created nuclear fusion for a good cause.
Young Wilson always held an interest in science, but his grandmother’s development of cancer lead him on a quest to form isotopes that combat and destroy the disease’s cells, which, eventually, he also decided to make “an alarm system to root out dirty bombs in shipping containers.”
I definitely recommend you to read The Boy Who Played With Fusion article right here and in the mean time I will also add that 20th Century Fox and Chernin Entertainment are behind the whole thing, while Peter Chernin and Jenno Topping will produce.
Any comments on this one?
Let us know what you think, because we’re definitely interested!
