Damn. That got scary when that thing almost chomped on them after making contact. Could be interesting to see a fully fleshed out thing.

I'd definitely watch a feature length version of this.

Look like a sci-fi version of Moby Dick.

Nifty.

Robinson is definitely a fan of EMEK/Decemberists, MTG, Goszilla 1998, Bespin, and Halo.

I'd watch it.

X-Men" and "Star Wars" franchise producer and writer Simon Kinberg has come on board to produce a feature film adaptation of the stunning sci-fi short "The Leviathan".

At the same time, writer/director Neill Blomkamp ("District 9," "Chappie") has also joined the project as executive producer. Jim Uhls ("Fight Club," "Jumper") has already penned the screenplay for the feature.

Ruairi Robinson ("The Last Days on Mars") created the 3.5 minute proof-of-concept piece which is set in the 22nd century and follows involuntarily drafted pilots who hunt giant whale-like flying creatures through the skies. In a week the short has racked up nearly two million views.

I would have loved a full 5 minute feature. That was really awesome. Lot of good names behind it as well.
It looked like they were flying through a nebula from the looks of the environment.

Is there anything that we as fans can do to cause this movie to be made? Nothing seems to have happened on it in years.

That was a pretty badass looking concept film! When I saw the 2015 date I got excited that the bump would be for progress on the feature length film.

That’s for bumming me out Jedothek!

Sounds like it has gotten quite the script re-write:

A Russian fisherman (Alexey Serebryakov) fights back when a corrupt mayor tries to seize possession of his ancestral home.

Seriously though, can’t find any kind of an update ...
