Academy Award winner Kathryn Bigelow is directing a feature film adaptation of “Aurora” for Netflix.

The film will be based on David Koepp’s upcoming novel, to be published June 7 by HarperCollins.

Koepp, who most recently penned the Stephen Soderbergh thriller “Kimi,” will write the “Aurora” adaptation. His previous screenwriting credits include “Jurassic Park,” “Carlito’s Way” and “Mission: Impossible.”

“Aurora” will be produced by Bigelow, Greg Shapiro, Gavin Polone and Koepp.

The story follows characters who are coping with the collapse of the social order, set against a catastrophic worldwide power crisis.

Bigelow became the first woman to win the Academy Award for Best Director with her 2008 film “The Hurt Locker,” which also won Best Picture. Her other directorial credits include “Zero Dark Thirty,” “Point Break” and “Near Dark.”

“Aurora” will be her first film to direct since 2017’s “Detroit.”
