What a Dick!


moby-dickI just wanted to say that. The Herman Melville novel Moby Dick is being turned into a movie. Seems everything is being turned into a movie. Who is doing this? Who would turn Moby Dick into a movie? Timur Bekmambetov, that’s who!

You may not know that name right away. Timur Bekmambetov is the director of Wanted and the planned Wanted 2. He now is making Moby Dick into a movie, but not just a novel to movie adaptation.

In an interview with MTV he says;

“The concept is if we’re talking about a creature with supernatural abilities, Moby Dick, then every whaler will have supernatural abilities. They can fly! I don’t know, they can bend bullets.”

Sounds crazy right? Super Hero Whalers? Giant Sperm Whale with super powers? Not only that, but in the video he talks about there being more than one Ahab!
