Catherine Hardwicke set to direct The Age of MiraclesCatherine Hardwicke is set to direct The Age of Miracles, a film based on Karen Thompson Walker's best-selling debut novel. Seth Lochhead (Hanna) has adapted the screenplay. River Road Entertainment's founder Bill Pohlad will produce.

Set amidst an advancing catastrophe after the Earth's rotation mysteriously slows, The Age of Miracles is a suspenseful and romantic snapshot of one young girl's adolescence, a poignant family drama, and a heartrending glimpse into the everyday tragedies and triumphs that define what it is to be human in a world that might just be ending.

Hardwicke recently completed production on Plush, a thriller she co-wrote with Arty Nelson. The film will star Emily Browning, Cam Gigandet, and Xavier Samuel. She is currently in production directing CBS' drama pilot, Reckless, from a script by Dana Stevens.

Christa Zofcin negotiated the deal on behalf of River Road. Catherine Hardwicke is represented by Manage-ment and CAA.

    @mr-k I like Lords of Dogtown, she did a frenzy of crazy-cool board action and The Nativity Story was decent. She might put out that cool-groovy style to this film, that will be good or bad for some.

      @Titon Catherine is a decent choice. She may have directed Twilight but she did direct good movies like The Nativity Story and Lords Of Dogtown.

        Basically a Love story set in the end of the world and giving a message of what means to be Human. Interesting Concept, but Catherine Hardwicke directing? they can do better than her.
