This could be interesting. She's no stranger to the genre by any means since she's acted in several. However, her directing work doesn't seem to cater to this genre well. We'll have to wait and see.

I'm more interested in seeing her in Elysium. I think she'll do an awesome job there. I'm always down for more Sci-Fi films in my life, I would be interested to see what she can bring to the genre as a director.
