Even with three of his films experiencing less-than-stellar critical reception, the majestic images and decent box office of Tarsem Singh's work have still allowed the “Mirror, Mirror” director a bevy of upcoming projects. His “Marco Polo” biopic is currently in the pre-production stages, and while Tarsem is set to next helm the Ryan Reynolds sci-fi drama “Selfless,” he's just been announced to stay within the same high-concept wheelhouse in the immediate future. The Wrap reports Tarsem will enter “The Panopticon,” an original sci-fi thriller written by Craig Rosenberg (“After The Sunset”), which follows an ordinary man who receives a mysterious package containing a message from himself—one that warns of the world's end if he doesn't find a way to prevent it. Good Universe and Andrew Lazar (“Get Smart”) will produce the flick, which might need Tarsem's signature style to rise above that rather vanilla setup. Meanwhile, a »

Director Tarsem Singh already has a couple future projects in the works with the sci-fi thriller Selfless starring Ryan Reynolds and an ambitious film called Eye in the Sky about a drone attack seen from the perspective of 62 different people.

The Wrap reports The Cell, The Fall and Immortals director is set to helm The Panopticon, a sci-fi action thriller from After the Sunset writer Craig Rosenberg.

Tarsem Singh tends to be loved or hated. There’s no doubt he prefers to concentrate on visuals rather than character interactions and plot development, but his films look like no other and are usually breathtaking. He left 6 years between his oddball serial killer thriller The Cell and his undisputed classic The Fall, and then there was another 5 years hiatus between that and Immortals, but it seems as though Singh (who has been credited over his productions as simply Tarsem, and then Tarsem SIngh, and sometimes Tarsem Singh Dhandwar), is looking to be more prolific and diverse. He followed up his sword and sandels epic Immortals with a family friendly adaptation of the Snow White tale in Mirror, Mirror.
Latest rumblings tell of a new project Singh is interested in, that being science-fiction thriller The Panopticon. Craig Rosenberg, writer of A Tale Of Two Sisters remake The Uninvited and After The Sunset, »

Director Tarsem Singh has lined up another project.
