Director Alex Proyas has signed on to produce Future Perfect, a film described in the vein of Hanna, to be directed by Shane Abbess, according to 24 Frames.

Reminiscent of Paper Moon, the film centers on an older man and a young girl, both eugenically created assassins, who must go on the run, in a dynamic that may or may not be that of a father and daughter.

The Australia-based production aims to use the District 9 model of grouping a young director, a high-profile producer, independent financing and a location far from Hollywood to make a vision-driven film that looks bigger than its relatively modest price tag.

The script has been written by Brian McGreevy and Lee Shipman.

No production date has been set.
