Haggis to write The Juliet film?

Paul Haggis could be writing sci-fi thriller The Juliet, according to reports.

The Next Three Days filmmaker is tipped to take on writing duties for the big-screen adaptation of Alfred Bester's 1954 short story Fondly Fahrenheit, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Rupert Sanders will direct the movie, which is about a playboy and an android who combine to become one murderous personality.

Paul is the fourth writer to work on The Juliet, following Henry Bean, Brian Koppelman and David Levien.

The Canadian writer and director previously wrote the screenplays for Oscar-winning films Million Dollar Baby and Crash (the latter of which he also directed), and James Bond films Casino Royale and Quantum Of Solace.

He recently wrote and directed Third Person starring Liam Neeson, Olivia Wilde, James Franco and Mila Kunis.
