Uber-producer Jerry Bruckheimer has just launched development on a “space adventure” film pitched to him by screenwriter Jon Spaihts. Spaihts, who wrote the first draft of Ridley Scott’s Alien prequel before subsequent rewrites by Damon Lindelof spun the project off into a wholly original film entitled Prometheus, will write the script for the sci-fi film. Variety’s report on the matter gives no further details, as Bruckheimer is keeping everything under wraps. Spaihts also wrote the upcoming sci-fi thriller The Darkest Hour 3D set to be released this August. That film stars Olivia Thirlby and centers on an alien invasion in Moscow. Bruckheimer is currently finishing post-production on Pirates of the Caribbean: On Strangers Tides which hits theaters May 20th.
