A brief report on two sci-fi pitches that found studio homes tonight.  20th Century Fox has picked up a pitch by screenwriter Peter Buchman (Che) with John Moore (Max Payne) attached to direct.  The logline is under wraps, but THR suggests there could be a science fiction element.  Moore will produce with John Davis (Predators).

Across town, Paramount Pictures acquired an untitled sci-fi thriller based on a pitch from Brian Miller.  According to Deadline, Miller pitched the “bid idea” movie with a budget under $30 million during a general meeting with Brad Weston (Bad Santa), who will produce.  Miller launched his writing career with Apollo 18, a similarly small-scale sci-fi concept that caught the eye of producer/director Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted).  Apollo 18 opens on April 22.
