Sony Wins Bidding War For Untitled Sci-Fi Project From J.J. Abrams

Not content to be involved in both Star Wars and Star Trek, the two biggest space operas of all time, Deadline reports that J.J. Abrams has set up another, untitled sci-fi project at Sony, which emerged victorious from a bidding war.

Unlike the Abrams-helmed Star Wars and Star Trek, the directing duties here will fall to first-timer Chris Alender. Abrams will instead produce the film through his Bad Robot banner. In true Abrams fashion, no information about the project has yet been revealed. The only thing known about the script is that the most recent draft was written by Justin Doble (Fringe, Almost Human).

An undisclosed source told Deadline that the film will have a Cloverfield feel and involve aliens. To get the project moving, Alender reportedly cut together a sizzle reel to convey the type of original visuals he hopes to incorporate into the film.
