Francis Lawrence made his debut as a feature film director in 2005 with Constantine. Two years later he directed I Am Legend. He is best known today for his work on the Hunger Games series, which he has directed since Catching Fire.
He has also sat in the director’s chair for Netflix to shoot Slumberland (November 2022) with Jason Momoa. We have linked the official teaser trailer for the film below so that you can have a small one foretaste of what the collaboration between Lawrence and the streaming service looks like or could look like.
Michael Green made his name as a screenwriter for the television series Smallville. Green Lantern (2011) became his first film project. Green finally achieved greater fame in 2017 with his screenplays for “Logan – The Wolverine” and “Blade Runner 2049”.
With this duo, Netflix sees the “BioShock” adaptation in good hands.
