Peter Cornwell has signed on to direct the sci-fi, space set Into Darkness, which is an adaptation of Joseph Conrad's novel "Heart of Darkness", for Radar Pictures.

The script was written by Tony Giglio and Branden R. Morgan. In the vein of Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now, the project is loosely based on Joseph Conrad's 1902 tale of ferryboat captain Charles Marlow's quest to return shadowy ivory trader Kurtz to civilization.

No production date has been set.
