Jason Blum whose career took off when he hit upon 2007s sleeper phenomenon Paranormal Activity is teaming up with Fast and Furious franchise writer Chris Morgan for the next low-budget sci-fi movie project.
Blum and Morgan will reportedly produce a brand new thriller under their Blumhouse and Chris Morgan Productions banners.
Plot details are being kept tightly under wraps, but the trade says the story will focus on a group of students who invent a brand new kind of technology ‘with ramifications that go far beyond their control.’
Actor-turned-scribe Christopher Denham, who you may remember as one of the Canadian Embassy houseguests in Ben Affleck’s Best Picture-winning Argo, write the script. He previously wrote the script for director Oren Peli’s upcoming found-footage movie Area 51.
Dark Skies producer Blum upcoming feature films include James DeMonaco’s sci-fi horror The Purge, opens June 7th, 2013 and James Wan’s anticipated sequel Insidious: Chapter 2, which is set to open September 13th, 2013.
Morgan who wrote the script for Fast & Furious 6 that will be in theaters next month is also developing The Legend of Conan.
