J.J. Abrams’ God Particle Lands Director

The awesomely named Julius Onah has landed the cushy directing gig.

The Abrams-produced, Oren Uziel-penned “God Particle” has found a director in Julius Onah, an up and comer (that means this will be his feature film directorial debut) with a couple of short films under his belt.

“God Particle” is a “Die Hard in a Space Station” movie, one of those “big idea” flicks that starts out really well, then ends up really (almost shockingly) generic.

I liken it to Danny Boyle’s “Sunshine” crossed with “Die Hard”. You can read my review of the script here if you’re so inclined.

Paramount is producing, but the film will be made for a limited budget of $5-10 million, which is pretty small for a movie set entirely on a space station. I wonder how they’re going to pull it off for such a cheap price tag?
