From the man who brought you Rob Schneider’s The Animal and the terrible-looking rom-com Something Borrowed comes… another movie. I know, my hopes are sky high, too.

Fox gave director Luke Greenfield a suitcase full of money for an “edgy action comedy” to star two famous dudes, to be named later. Hopefully, they will have different racial backgrounds, so there will be a lot of conflict, because people of different races do not see eye-to-eye, especially in action-based scenarios.

Fox paid somewhere in the six-figures for the script, co-written by Greenfield and Nicholas Thomas, to be produced by Simon Kinberg. (Deadline)

That Bastard Doug Liman Wants To Send Megan Fox To The ‘Moon’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/that-bastard-doug-liman-wants-to-send-megan-fox-to-the-moon/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/that-bastard-doug-liman-wants-to-send-megan-fox-to-the-moon/#comments Wed, 23 Mar 2011 07:17:49 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=203099 The director is finally dusting off his sci-fi caper film, with the clever name "untitled 'Moon' project," and is talking to Fox, Rosario Dawson, Andrew Garfield and many more.

If director Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity) has his way, he’ll send Megan Fox, Rosario Dawson, Eva Mendes, Rachel McAdams, Olivia Wilde or Zoe Saldana to Moon. Perhaps to test the effects of zero gravity on my favorite boobs? Just leave a girl or two on Earth for us all to masturbate to, Liman.

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)

Neil Blomkamp is on a roll. The District 9 director just snagged Jodie Foster, who needs to make up for Contact, for his as-of-yet unexplained sci-fi picture, Elysium, racking up some major star power in the process. Matt Damon is already on board, having committed early last month, and Sherlock Holmes writer Simon Kinberg set to produce. District 9 star Sharlto Copley (the dude who lost his fingernails) will also appear.

Blomkamp is keeping the film’s plot under wraps, but the few clues he has provided indicate that Elysium will take place on an alien planet sometime in the future. There will be an abundance of sociopolitical commentary, violence, and sociopolitical violence, which everyone knows is the best kind because it really makes you think, you know? (Deadline)
