Scott Steindorff and Gene Simmons are partnering on a sci-fi version of the ancient tale “Icarus” based on a concept created by Simmons.
Steindorff is producing through his Scott Pictures banner. Logline is under wraps other than it is centered on two characters, one the hunter and the other hunted. Scott Pictures is out to writers.
In Greek mythology, Icarus is the son of the craftsman Daedalus, who creates wings of wax and feathers to escape from Crete. Icarus ignored instructions not to fly too close to the sun, causing him to fall into the sea and drown.
Steindorff is in pre-production on “Jane Got a Gun,” starring Natalie Portman and Michael Fassbender, and “The Master and Margarita,” slated for production in the fall.
Under Stone Village Pictures, Steindorff’s producing credits include “The Lincoln Lawyer,” “The Human Stain” and “Love in the Time of Cholera.”
