Well, this is ironic. I just reviewed a script called “God Particle” by Oren Uziel that recently sold to Paramount and J.J. Abrams, that basically uses the whole “god particle” theory as its backbone. Turns out, it might not be a theory at all! You know what that means — watch out, Planet Earth! From the AP: Scientists working at the world’s biggest atom smasher plan to announce Wednesday that they have gathered enough evidence to show that the long-sought “God particle” answering fundamental questions about the universe almost certainly does exist. But after decades of work and billions of dollars spent, researchers at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, or CERN, say they aren’t quite ready to say they’ve “discovered” the particle. Instead, experts familiar with the research at CERN’s vast complex on the Swiss-French border say that the massive data they have obtained will essentially show the footprint of the key particle known as the Higgs boson —… Continue Reading »
Without giving anything away: did you ever see the Danny Boyle movie “Sunshine”? Well, that’s “God Particle”, the new script from screenwriter Oren Uziel that recently sold to J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot production company and Paramount. The two films are amazingly alike, from a promising beginning and set-up to what eventually becomes a generic, by-the-numbers slasher movie. Who knew the end of the world could be so … ordinary?
Man and science. It never results in anything good. Well, in the movies, anyway. In real life, man and science gives us cures for diseases and probably more importantly, iPhones. In the movies, though, they end up creating giant, rampaging monsters, results in alien invasions, or in the case of J.J. Abrams’ new movie “God Particle”, the end of the world as we know it. In “God Particle”, a new film that Abrams will be producing for Paramount, the world doesn’t so much as end as it, well, disappears. After a physics experiment with a large hadron accelerator causes the Earth to seemingly vanish completely, the terrified crew of an orbiting American space station is left floating in the middle of now-even-more-empty space. When a European spacecraft appears on their radar, the Americans must determine whether it’s their salvation, or a harbinger of doom. Yup, definitely not a good thing, there. Abrams isn’t expected to direct, but we do know… Continue Reading »
