Production Assistants do grunt work on set, from fetching coffee to moving furniture in the production offices to moving furniture that will eventually become home to a coffee maker. Glamorous work, indeed. However, PAs sometimes rise up the ranks, and people eventually move and fetch things for them. Looks like Bobby Glickert is there.

Glickert, a PA on Transformers and Iron Man, and director Justin Lin‘s former assistant, sold a science fiction movie pitch to Universal. From robot fluffer to sci-fi super-player. He’s attached to direct and produce the film, with Lin and Scott Stuber set to co-produce. Universal is looking for a writer to pen the screenplay. Though plot details are being kept under-wraps, the word is that it’s similar in tone to Heat and the Bourne movies. Here’s what Lin has to say:

“Taking a step back, as a viewer, the tone and the gritty approach to the sci-fi genr taken here is something that hasn’t been seen in a while.”

Uh, hasn’t he seen WALL-E? That shit’s gritty as f*ck. (Hollywood Reporter)

Michael Bay Wants to Make Alien Abductions Explode http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/michael-bay-wants-to-make-alien-abductions-explode/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/michael-bay-wants-to-make-alien-abductions-explode/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 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.
