Knowing just got a little more interesting.

I was already vaguely interested in Knowing, which is currently scheduled to hit theatres in March of next year, simply because of the premise and the fact that it is directed by Alex Proyas, whose Dark City was my favorite film of 1998. (Alas, I have not yet had a chance to check out the “director’s cut” that came out last month.) But today Carmen Andres alerted me to the fact that one of the writers on this film is Stuart Hazeldine, a Christian who has also worked on the script for Scott Derrickson’s in-development adaptation of John Milton’s Paradise Lost. Now I’m even more intrigued. For what it’s worth, this is the film’s current trailer:
