Rick McCallum of Star Wars and Lucasfilm fame is attached to produce the feature-length adaptation of R’Ha, a sci-fi project that started as a short film.  Matthew Graham (Life on Mars) has been tapped to pen the screenplay.  Although this will be McCallum’s first sci-fi project since departing Lucasfilm, he’ll be assisted by Steve Tzirlin, who was a producer on Star Wars: Clone Wars and worked with McCallum at Lucasfilm, and original producers Raymond Brothers and Scott Glassgold of IAM Entertainment.  The original short film, from creator Kaleb Lechowski (who will also direct the feature) follows a species of non-humans – the R’Ha – who defend a group of solar systems from attack.  Hit the jump for more, including the short in question.

Heat Vision reports that McCallum will come on board to produce the feature-length version of R’Ha.  See what he had to say about the picture after taking a look at the short film below:

From McCallum:

“What inspires me and our team is that there are no humans whatsoever in the film, and yet Kaleb has come up with a world that is so engaging and so alive and so real that it really is very different from anything else I have seen in the sci-fi world.  We want to make it as a European film, using VFX facilities from all over Central and Eastern Europe and Asia, and do it for a price that not only allows Kaleb total control of his unique vision, but is incomprehensible in the big-budget VFX world that we now live in!”
