After kicking total ass with his directorial debut Attack The Block, Joe Cornish found himself on seemingly every short list in Hollywood. Everyone wanted to work with the man who made Moses cool again and now he’s finally ready to trust.

Cornish has just committed to write and direct Snow Crash, based on the best-selling breakthrough novel by Neal Stephenson, which will be produced by Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall at Paramount. Snow Crash takes place in a futuristic world run by corrupt corporations, where a deadly computer virus/street drug is circling across the world.
