Wayne Kramer will direct ECSTASIA for Relativity

Well, this is an interesting development. Deadline Hollywood reports that Wayne Kramer will direct his own script for the futuristic drama ECSTASIA for Relativity. Despite only having helmed five features, he’s covered a respectable variety of genres, but he’s yet to direct a film quite like this.

ECSTASIA takes place in an “alternate universe” where love exists only in an expensive, artificial simulation called “commitment.” It focuses on a couple 10 days from losing this “commitment.” Kramer was on board to direct HEADSHOT with Sylvester Stallone starring in the film, but he recently exited the helm of that feature.

Kramer directed the controversial Oscar-nominated drama THE COOLER but since then has failed to recapture that same level of success with either the critics or moviegoers. The intriguing plot of ECSTASIA could lead to it becoming Kramer’s biggest hit yet, but will he return to a high level of acclaim?
