The first seeds of a sci-fi adventure have been planted over at Variety, where we’re told that Louis Leterrier (Clash of the Titans, The Incredible Hulk) and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura are coming together for an untitled, secretive genre project. Written by fresh-faced scribe Nic Kelman, this new endeavor — only described as “a low-budget, contained sci-fi pic” — is already gaining the attention of a few Hollywood studios.
Which is certainly a nice way to start things off, though Paramount does have a first-look deal with the producer’s Di Bonaventura Pictures — this happens when you produce three Transformers movies — and, should there be something worthwhile here, I’d think they take it up themselves. Paramount or no Paramount, though, it’s hard to imagine this won’t gain proper traction in the near future and, from there, occupy some schedules. Again: This happens when you produce three Transformers movies.
We don’t have much else to say at the moment, but, as someone who generally appreciates the low-fi nature of Leterrier‘s actioners, I’d argue there’s enough to generate sufficient interest. When something’s this early out, that’s all it really takes.
Any first impressions of this project, minor though they may be?
