Wanted Director Takes on Moby Dick

September 23, 2008

The Russian director of the film Wanted is taking on Moby Dick as his next project.
Call him Ishmael. Or rather, Timur Bekmambetov. The Russian director of Wanted is to take charge of a modern day "graphic novel-style" adaptation of Herman Melville's classic of brooding obsession on the high seas, Moby Dick.

Out goes the original novel's first-person structure, which famously descends into an array of wildly diverse narrative styles and structures by the end of the book, while the original's misanthropic, cetacean-hating Captain Ahab will apparently be more of a heroic figure. So not really that much like Moby Dick at all then.
One thing's for sure: it will be action-packed, if the film Wanted is any indication of how this director likes to do things.
