Universal has picked up a sci-fi crime thriller pitch that Fast Five director Justin Lin will be producing. The pitch comes from Bobby Glickert, a P.A. on Transformers and Iron Man and Lin’s assistant on Fast and Furious. Glickert will write the project with an eye towards directing it himself. Speaking with Heat Vision, Lin commented, “the tone and the gritty approach to the sci-fi genre taken here is something that hasn’t been seen in a while.” So it’s something “unique,” just like every other pitch picked up in Hollywood. The thriller is said to be in the vain of Heat and the Bourne series. Glickert has another sci-fi project in development with Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes partners at Paramount.
