The Upside, Divergent and Limitless director Burger has written and will direct the sci-fi-thriller about 30 children who are sent on a multi-generational mission to populate a new planet. After the captain of the mission is killed in mysterious circumstances, the young crew descends into chaos, aligning themselves into tribes as they surrender to their most feral impulses.
