Paul Haggis Discusses a Possible Cli-Fi Feature YA Movie titled 'Ship Breaker' adapted from Paolo Bacigalupi YA series

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ship_Breaker

Ship Breaker is a 2010 young adult novel by Paolo Bacigalupi set in a post-apocalyptic future. Human civilization is in decline for ecological reasons. The polar ice caps have melted and New Orleans has been buried underwater. On the Gulf Coast nearby, humanity has reverted to survival mode and a small economy has grown from the scavenging of washed up oil tankers for bits of copper and other valuables.[1]

Nailer is a fifteen-year-old boy who works on the light crew. His mother died when he was a young boy and he now lives with his alcoholic and drug addicted father, Richard Lopez. After a storm, Nailer rescues Nita, the stranded daughter of a wealthy merchant, and helps her to get back home. Unfortunately, this infuriates several parties, including Nailer's father, the local power brokers, and Nita's father's enemies, including Nita's uncle Pyce.

 


PLOT

Nailer, a small-framed teenage boy, is scavenging through an old rusty ship for copper wire. As he crawls through the darkness looking for scavenge to make quota, he dreams of traveling through the bright blue waters of the flooded oceans on a speeding clipper ship. While gathering copper wires, Nailer falls through the duct and lands in a deep pool of oil. Sloth, another member of the light crew, finds Nailer in the oil pocket, but decides to leave him to die because she wants Nailer's job. Luckily, Nailer is able to escape the oil and washes up on the beach. On the way out, Nailer is impaled by a rusty piece of metal. He survives.[2]
A storm arrives shortly after Nailer's father, Richard, passes out due to too much drugs. Sadna, Pima's mother, helps wake Richard up and saves him from the storm. After two nights, the storm finally subsides. Nailer and Pima decide to check the beach for scavenge. They find a massive clipper ship stranded on the beach.[3] With a lot of hesitation, the two Light Crew teenagers save the only survivor of the ship, Nita, whom is nicknamed "Lucky Girl" by Nailer, since she survived the shipwreck.[4] After Nailer saves Nita, Richard wants to kill the girl and steal the scavenge. Pima lunges at Richard with a knife, but is overpowered. Richard decides to show mercy because Pima's mother, Sadna, had saved him from the storm. Knowing that there might be a reward for returning Nita to her father or uncle, Richard decides to spare her. Soon after, Nailer becomes sick and sleeps for 3 days.[5]
"Lucky Girl" eventually tells Pima and Nailer the truth: she ran away to safety because her uncle, who wishes to sell illegal "tar sand", aims to use her as leverage against her father. Nailer decides to leave with Nita, and a half-man named Tool (originally in Richard's Heavy Crew) to New Orleans. After jumping trains, they arrive in New Orleans.[6]
They wait for a ship called the Dauntless, a ship loyal to Nita's father, to arrive. Eventually the Dauntless arrives, but so does Richard. He is dressed as a swank (a rich man). Feeling suspicious, Nailer scouts the ship. After returning to his and Nita's hideout, he discovers that Richard and Nita's uncle, Pyce, have kidnapped her.[7] Nailer joins Captain Candless and the rest of the Dauntless crew on a high-speed chase after the Pole-Star, the ship Nita is presumedly on.[8] While on the ship, Nailer learns how to read and works on the gear systems in the depths of the ship.[9]
During some high speed maneuvering, the Dauntless outsmarts the other ships, the Ray and the Pole Star, after sailing back to the gulf where the story started. The crew members of the Dauntless board the ship, and Nailer searches for Nita. He encounters his father and a fight ensues. Using his newfound ability to read and his experience with the gear systems, Nailer wins and saves Nita. The book ends with Nailer meeting Nita again on the same beach they met.[10]

Paul Haggis Discussed a Possible Cli-Fi Feature titled 'Ship Breaker' with Hollywood Reporter columnist Nick Holdsworth at an overseas film festival -- in Morocco at the Marrakech Film Festival -- that he plans to write the script and shoot it. Dates not verified and release date not certain yet. 2020? 2025? Hollywood projects take time, sometimes 5 to ten years.
 
At the film festival, Paul Haggis talked about adapting 3 YA books by Paolo Bacigalupi. but he said while two have been published already, SHIP BREAKER and DROWNED CITIES, the third novel is the series, TOOL AT WAR,  is yet to come out.
 

Haggis  did not actually mention making 3 separate movies - so it might be one YA cli-fi movie based on the three part series and titled SHIP BREAKER. More news will come out later from Paolo's camp.

Will the movie he makes be a cli-fi movie,  as a subgenre of sci fi? Probably, but only in so far as the post-pocalyptic world is post-ice cap melting. Call it sci fi, cli fi, whatever. Again, the studio will decide now to label and market and promote the movie to as wide an audience as possible.

Haggis did not want to go into specifics about new projects, but when he was talking to the HR reporter about his personal interest climate change, he revealed the details about SHIP BREAKER adaptation.
No idea on release date yet.

Would Paul Haggis call the movie he plans to write and direct based on SHIP BREAKER a cli-fi movie? We will have to wait and see what the PR and marketing team do with it in the future, it's up to the producers and the PR people. One suspects that Haggis sees this SHIPBREAKER project as a good story that is in his area of interest. The story is all.
 
The Oscar-winner will write and direct a film adaptation of Paolo Bacigalupi's novel set after the melting of the polar ice caps.
   
Paul Haggis revealed details of his adaptation of post-apocalyptic young adult novel Ship Breaker.

The book, the first of three in a series by American author Paolo Bacigalupi, is set in a future after the polar ice caps have melted and major cities have disappeared beneath rising sea waters.

Haggis, who has won Oscars for both directing (Crash) and writing (Clint Eastwood's Million Dollar Baby), explained to The Hollywood Reporter he had been attracted by the project  because it involved environmental and ecological topics.

"The books are set hundreds of years in the future, after civil wars, after the ice caps have retreated and the world is populated by people who know nothing of our times," he said.

"I liked the idea that you could take that idea [of a post-apocalyptic world ignorant of the 21st century] and explore hopes and fears through that."

Haggis, who was talking in Morocco at the Marrakech Film Festival, where he gave a master class, said that being able to obliquely explore themes that touched on global warming and environmental destruction was one reason the project caught his eye.

"Climate change is a concern of mine, and taking on a film that is not just a narrative about that is attractive," he said, adding that tackling weighty subjects directly does not always work.

"I made that mistake in [2007 crime thriller] In the Valley of Elah — although I think it is one of my best films — but at that time, no one wanted to see it. They did not want to talk about issues that were too powerful at the time."


NOTES:

Ship Breaker will be produced by Far East, set up by producer Philip Lee (The Revenant, Assassin's Creed, Cloud Atlas) and his partner, Hollywood financier Markus Barmettler. Co-founded with Lee's longtime producing partner Markus Barmettler, Facing East is currently producing Peter Segal’s sci-fi action title Inversion, scripted by Paul Haggis. The firm is also developing another project, Shipbreaker, based on the award-winning YA book by Paolo Bacigalupi, which will also be scripted by Haggis, who will direct the project. The company has also partly financed Terrence Malick's Radegund, which is slated for a 2018 release.

Paul Haggis’ ''Ship Breaker'' Sounds Like It’s Going To Be A Massive, Cli-Fi Thriller






Paul Haggis Ship Breaker


Conner Schwerdtfeger  writes:

Few film categories have become more densely populated in recent years than the Young Adult genre. Seriously, we can only watch the same, sanitized, dystopian world before all of these films start to blend together. It's a hard world to stand out in, but that's exactly what Paul Haggis intends to do. The legendary director recently opened up and provided some insight into his upcoming adaptation of Paolo Bacigalupi's Ship Breaker YA series, and it sounds like it's going to be one of the most intense YA adaptations ever.


Director Paul Haggis recently spoke to Nick Holdsworth at the THR in Morocco and provided more information regarding his upcoming adaptation of Ship Breaker. It seems that he found himself drawn to the film project   because he wanted to take on a project that would take a hard look at environmental issues and the topic of global warming. At its core, the story of Ship Breaker centers on a future version of human society that has no real knowledge of the events of the 21st century, and such an idea resonated with Haggis and his concerns about these real world issues.


The overarching premise of the Ship Breaker story sounds far more intense than the average YA adaptations that we typically see these days. Taking place hundreds of years in the future, the story centers on a dystopian version of our world in which global warming has wreaked havoc on the environment. Sea levels have risen due to shifts in worldwide temperature, and major cities have vanished as a result of rising sea levels. The story follows a young boy named Nailer who tries to survive by scavenging derelict ships for supplies, while also coping with an abusive, alcoholic father at home.


For Haggis, the ultimate appeal seems to be the opportunity tackle a story about major ecological issues in a way that audiences might actually respond to. This isn't his first foray into the realm of topical drama -- his wholly underrated 2007 film, In the Valley of Elah similarly took a hard-hitting look at the mentality of soldiers returning from Iraq -- but he thinks Ship Breaker could really be a chance for him to frame this particular issue properly.


What makes the prospect of a Ship Breaker film so interesting is the fact that it's a generally much darker cli-fi story than the average YA adaptation. Sure, projects like The Hunger Games and The Maze Runner broach some dark topics, but Ship Breaker is one of the darker Young Adult novel series in recent memory. Much of this has to do with the fact that writer Paolo Bacigalupi is actually known for writing adult oriented material, and Ship Breaker represented his first major foray into the YA world.


CinemaBlend's Conner Schwerdtfeger   will bring you any and all relevant details related to Paul Haggis' upcoming Ship Breaker adaptation as more information becomes available him. At this point only one thing is certain: Ship Breaker could be exactly what the Young Adult genre needs right now. Although the movie probably won' hit movie theaters until at least 2020.
