Comic-Con ‘08: Summit Panel – Knowing

Published 7 years ago by

Alex Proyas flew out from Australia to talk about his new film Knowing. Proyas jokingly apologized for not having any beautiful actors with him.

Nicolas Cage discovers a list of numbers that turn out to be predictors of every major disaster in the last 50 years.

They showed a clip setting up the plot of the entire film – a young girl in 1959 that seems a little “off” writes down two pages of seemingly random numbers when the teacher asked the class to draw pictures of what they think the future will look like. Cut to present day and Nic Cage discovers that the numbers do indeed have meaning and we follow the progression of what may be the upcoming disasters.

Proyas said that he wanted to make the movie and Nic Cage’s character as real as possible.

Despite the action-edited look of the trailer Proyas said the film is actually quite low key.

Proyas denied a rumor that he might be directed a Silver Surfer movie.

Knowing will be released in March 2009.
