Variety has announced that Tarsem Singh has been signed to direct the political thriller Unthinkable for Sidney Kimmel Entertainment. The plot is being kept under wraps with the only detail being provided was that the film would be set in contemporary America. While, it is not exactly the most illuminating information, it helps to remember that when it comes to Tarsem Singh's films, plot isn't always foremost in his mind. Peter Woodward is overseeing a re-write of the original script, and SKE hopes to start production later this year. This movie sounds like a bit of stretch for the director, who is known for surreal and fantastic imagery. If it works, it should be one trippy political flick.
