20th Century Fox has just bought a pitch from screenwriters Alex Litvak and Mike Finch (Predators) that outlines an action thriller set in deep space. According to Deadline, director Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted) is circling the project. Wisely, he may wait until to the script is actually, you know, written before he makes any sort of commitment to the project.
Following the duo’s work on Predators, Litvak branched off his own for a bit to script Paul W.S. Anderson’s 3D The Three Musketeers before reteaming with Finch to work on a draft of He-Man: Masters of the Universe. Up next for Bekmambetov is Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, in theaters June 22, 2012.
