Paramount and Universal Set New Sci-Fi Projects: Clark Baker’s ‘Vessel’ and One By Zak Penn and Chris Morgan
Posted on Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012 by Germain Lussier
Two of the major studios set up brand new sci-fi projects on Wednesday. First up, Paramount bought the rights to Clark Baker‘s short film Vessel with the aim to turn it into a feature. We covered it in June and it’s about a flight that goes frighteningly wrong. Stephen Susco (The Grudge, Red, Texas Chainsaw 3D) has been tapped to write the adaptation with Baker directing.
Then, over at Universal, they’ve just bought a still-untitled pitch from Zak Penn (The Avengers, X-Men The Last Stand) and Chris Morgan (Fast Five, Wanted) which is reportedly in the vein of Chronicle. Read more about both projects below.
