Earth vs. Moon is Sci-Fi Epic
Sci-fi epics don’t come around every day, and when a script is picked up for mid to high six-figures, and it’s referred to by The Hollywood Reporter as a “sci-fi epic”, then by God, it better be a sci-fi epic. The script was written by Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, and purchased by Universal studios, who have set Scott Stuber to produce the film for them. The article doesn’t say if this will be an animated movie or live-action, but Rhett Reese’s previous credits include the computer-animated Pixar flick “Monsters, Inc”.
Wernick and Reese will executive produce the project.
The duo created and executive produced Spike TV’s “The Joe Schmo Show,” which eventually sold as an international format in the U.K., France, Spain and other countries. They are writing and executive producing “Zombieland,” set up at Sony with Gavin Polone producing.
Yup, it’s been a while since we’ve had ourselves a sci-fi epic. And let’s face it, the moon has had it coming for a while now.
