That Bastard Doug Liman Wants To Send Megan Fox To The ‘Moon’
The director is finally dusting off his sci-fi caper film, now with the clever name "untitled Moon project," which has been lingering at Paramount after a jump from Dreamworks in 2007. After rewrites by top screenwriters like Simon Kinberg (Sherlock Holmes), and now that Liman's All You Need Is Kill is getting killed for lack of momentum at Warner Bros, Liman is ready to round up actors for a good old fashioned space heist.
For the male lead, Limon's met with Andrew Garfield, Emile Hirsch and Chris Pine. Of course, Chris Pine has spaceperience (space experience) as Star Trek's Captain Kirk, but I'm sure Spider-Man's been to space a bunch of times. No biggie. Jake Gyllenhaal used to be attached, but he ain't no more.
Here's the plot:
The story centers on a renegade group of former space employees, led by an Eastern European woman, who travel the world, stealing space equipment in an attempt to go back to the moon to acquire an energy source. The last item to steal -- or in this case, kidnap -- is an ex-NASA employee.
You've got to hand it to them - if you're a criminal, what better place is there to escape to than the moon? It's very unlikely the police will follow you in a squad rocket. Then again, how do you inconspicuously re-enter the earth's atmosphere? (Hollywood Reporter)
