Screenwriter Jon Spaihts and producer Jerry Bruckheimer are “in like” with each other, and the news of their second project together should take things to the next level. No details are available for the project, but Variety calls it a “space adventure,” which we could have easily assumed given Spaihts’ track record of Prometheus (he wrote the first draft), The Darkest Hour, Shadow 19, and Passengers, all of which are space adventures.
This will be the second sci-fi adventure for the duo, who had earlier teamed up for World War Robot (also a space adventure), a graphic novel adaptation that portrays “a small band of humans and robots facing off in a battle on Earth, the moon and Mars.” Best of luck to the poor bastards who are part of the production design team on that one.
While no specifics were mentioned, expect the film to convey the understated elegance and quiet dignity that Bruckheimer and alien adventure films are known for. (Variety)
