Robert Zemeckis is going where they don’t need roads. After mostly working in prestigious dramas and adventure films for the past few decades, the Allied director is returning to the science-fiction genre. Zemeckis is still beloved for his Back to the Future trilogy, which has cemented itself as a staple of ’80s nostalgia, and he is now attached to his first sci-fi movie since 1997’s Contact.
Zemeckis is producing a sci-fi action film called Steel Soldiers, a multiplatform project under STX Entertainment and China’s Alibaba Pictures. There’s no word yet on whether Zemeckis will direct, but this news is certainly a little heavy.
