Edgar Wright, Mark Protosevich and J.J. Abrams Come Together for COLLIDER and the Best Movie Title Ever

     July 23, 2012


Paramount has teamed up director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead) with screenwriter Mark Protosevich (I Am Legend) for Collider, which is easily the best title in the history of film.  The sci-fi film will be directed and co-written by Wright, who will also share producing credits along with J.J. Abrams and Nira Park of Bad Robot.  Any plot details are non-existent at the moment, but it could very well involve an intrepid group of web journalists who unite to save the world…or maybe the recent news surrounding the Large Hadron Collider at CERN; either way.  Hit the jump for more on Wright and Protosevich’s upcoming projects to see where Collider might land.

collider-edgar-wrightDeadline reports that Paramount is teaming the talent of Wright and Protosevich for Collider, based on an original idea by Wright.  Protosevich is currently involved with the remake of Chan-wook Park’s Oldboy, which is being directed by Spike Lee and stars Josh Brolin.  Protosevich’s future works also include a feature adaptation of the hit video game Mass Effect and the reboot, Jurassic Park 4.

Wright, meanwhile, is busy completing The World’s End, his “blood and ice cream trilogy” with stars Nick Frost and Simon Pegg. The recently greenlit sci-fi comedy features a group of friends who reunite in order to complete an unfinished pub crawl, with the final stop at the bar named The World’s End.  You may have also heard about Wright’s recent tests of Marvel’s Ant-Man which was recently screened at Comic-Con for the gathered masses.  Keep an eye on the developments of Collider to see if the folks over at Badass Digest have the right idea.
