Director Doug Liman’s untitled moon film may be rising again at Paramount Pictures.
The science-fiction project, called Luna when it was set up at DreamWorks in 2007. It later moved to Paramount, with Jake Gyllenhaal attached, and went through numerous rewrites. And then it sat dormant.
But now Heat Vision reports that Liman, who helmed Go, The Bourne Identity and Fair Game, is again focused on the film, which centers on a group of ex-space employees who travel the world stealing equipment in an effort to return to the moon to find an energy source. All they need now is a former NASA employee, whom they set out to kidnap.
Gyllenhaal is no longer involved, but Liman is reportedly looking to line up two or three lead actors in short order.
According to Heat Vision, the director has had meetings with several actresses — presumably for the role of the Eastern European woman who leads the band of renegades — including Rosario Dawson, Megan Fox, Rachel McAdams, Eva Mendes, Zoe Saldana and Olivia Wilde. He’s also met with Andrew Garfield, Emile Hirsch and Chris Pine.
Paramount hasn’t greenlit the movie yet, but Liman apparently would like to begin shooting in late summer.
