Earth Versus Moon
Forget Superman versus Batman or Terminator versus Robocop or Ali versus Foreman. They’re all lightweights compared to this. Universal Pictures has picked up the rights to an upcoming science fiction movie called Earth vs. Moon.
Plot details are sparse, but we do know it’s a sci fi epic. Really though, the title says it all. It’s the Earth, fighting the Moon. Hell yeah, it’s about time someone took those Moon bastards out.
Here’s what HR has to say about it:
After a bidding war among four studios, Universal has picked up “Earth vs. Moon,” a pitch from scribes Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, for Scott Stuber to produce.
The deal was in the mid- to high-six figures.
Wernick and Reese will executive produce the project.
The duo created and executive produced Spike TV’s “The Joe Schmo Show,” which eventually sold as an international format in the U.K., France, Spain and other countries. They are writing and executive producing “Zombieland,” set up at Sony with Gavin Polone producing.
Reese also was a writer on Pixar’s “Monsters, Inc.,” and Wernick earned three Emmys for his work in TV news.
