Michael Bay Wants to Make Alien Abductions Explode

Alien abductions and big explosions: together at last!

Director Michael Bay is teaming with Paramount Pictures to produce Bobby Glickert’s upcoming alien film, tentativly titled Confidential Alien Project (don’t let them screw with that title, Bobby). While Glickert has directed a few horror shorts, this will be his first full-length feature. Insiders are comparing the film to both Cloverfield and Paranormal Activity, which is a nice way of saying it’s cheap. Considering Paramount is hoping to keep the budget at around $12 million, that seems to be the case.

Deadline is reporting that Bay’s production company, Platinum Dunes, is currently shopping for writers, so if anyone knows a lot of synonyms for "Kaboom," send your resume here.
