Rising British filmmaker Julian Gilbey has signed on to direct sci-fi action thriller Offworld. Empire reveal that Gilbey [A Lonely Place to Die] will team up with producer Lloyd Levin who describes the project as thus: "It's a kind of an intergalactic Naked Prey, a pedal-to-the-metal safari movie set on an alien planet. There's lots of nasty creatures - some even on the good guys' side." David Leslie Johnson [Orphan, The Walking Dead] will pen the script. Gilbey's A Lonely Place To Die, starring Melissa George & Ed Speleers hit UK theaters last week.
