Kathryn Ann Bigelow is a trendy film director, producer, and screenwriter. She has worked on multiple projects that covered a wide range of genres. The 70-year-old media personality has been part of numerous films, including Near Dark, Point Break, Strange Days, K-19: The Widowmaker, The Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty, and Detroit.
The news of her joining Netflix for its upcoming project named Aurora has been roaming the halls of Hollywood. Aurora is an adaptation of the forthcoming novel by David Koepp, which Kathryn Bigelow will direct. It was first announced in March 2022. The director also won an Oscar in 2008 for her work on The Hurt Locker.
The adaptation will be produced by Bigelow’s longtime producing partner Greg Shapiro and Gavin Polone, whose long history with Koepp includes creating the writer and sometimes director’s movies such as Stir of Echoes and Secret Window.
Aurora is suspenseful storytelling, both large and small, at its finest. David Koepp pens it. New York Times best-selling author of Find You First, Linwood Barclay, shared his experience and his words read, “Forget a good night’s sleep. Aurora is epic, but personal and poignant, horrifying and darkly funny, and flat-out suspenseful.”
The official synopsis of the project reads, “The story follows that events of a solar storm that knocks out most of humanity’s power grids and focuses on the personal story of a divorced mother who must now do everything she can to protect her teenaged and her estranged brother, a wealthy Silicon Valley CEO who has built a luxurious bunker in the desert for just such a disaster.”
There have been no updates regarding its release date. But we can expect to see it sometime in 2023 or 2024. For further updates, stay tuned.
