‘The Lincoln Lawyer’ producer, Scott Steindorff, has partnered up with KISS musician and business mogul, Gene Simmons, for a re-imagined version of ‘Icarus’.

According to Variety, the sci-fi version of the ancient tale of ‘Icarus’ does not have a confirmed logline, “other than it is centered on two characters, one the hunter and the other hunted”.

‘Icarus’, a concept created by Simmons, will be loosely based on the character in Greek mythology. Icarus is the son of Daedalus, who makes wings out of wax and feathers to escape from Crete, only to drown after ignoring instructions to avoid flying close to the sun.

Steindorff is currently working on ‘Jane Got a Gun’ with Natalie Portman and Michael Fassbender and ‘The Master and Margarita’.

Steindorff is producing through his Scott Pictures banner.
