Jack Bender blossomed into a superstar TV director by helming 37 episodes of Lost.  Bender has been trying to parlay that into his feature directorial debut, but he had to drop out of the Jack Ryan reboot, and we’ve heard nothing about 7 Minutes in Heaven since it was announced in 2010Heat Vision reports Bender is developing a new project , Devolution, at Legendary.  The studio is keeping the plot details for the thriller.  But the other members of the creative team suggest this will be a genre picture.  Max Brooks, author of zombie novel World War Z, came up with the idea.  David Leslie Johnson, credited writer on two The Walking Dead episodes, will write the script.  The title would be appropriate for a zombie thriller, but we ought to wait for confirmation on that.  I just want Bender to get a feature project in front of cameras soon, to see what he can do with a bigger canvas.
