Shoot 'Em Up director Michael Davis has signed on to direct Outland, a remake of the 1981 Sean Connery sci-fier for Warner Bros. and Hollywood Gang Prods.

According to Variety, Chad St. John will pen the drama, which revolves around a police marshal stationed at a remote mining colony on Jupiter's moon Io, where he uncovers a murderous conspiracy threatening the entire Outland with collapse.

"We loved the original sci-fi film with Sean Connery," Nunnari said. "At its core, Outland is a version of High Noon in outer space, as two courageous people take a stand against a gang of ruthless conspirators at the highest level."

No production date has been set.
