Fede Alvarez’s career is on fire…
The 35-year-old Uruguayan filmmaker is currently in talks to direct Dante’s Inferno.
Universal Pictures is setting Alvarez, the man behind the Evil Dead remake, to helm the live action adaptation of the Electronic Arts video game, which is rooted in the famous literary work.
The protagonist, Dante Aligheri is a knight who with the help of the poet Virgil ventures into the nine rings of hell to rescue his beloved Beatrice. In the process, he becomes an
unwitting pawn in an ancient war between heaven and hell. Rights to the video game were won by Universal several years ago in a bidding battle.
The game was released in 2010 for Xbox and PlayStation.
