J.J. Abrams and Bryan Burk (Star Trek) will be producing a feature based on an untitled pitch for Paramount Pictures through their Bad Robot company. The pitch cost the studio $2 million, and is written by Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada ) and Simon Kinberg (X-Men: The Last Stand).
Plot details are being kept a secret right now, but Abrams did have the following to say:
“These two writers couldn’t be more different, the genres they write seem almost diametrically opposed. But they came to Bad Robot with a pitch that thrilled us. We feel extremely lucky to get to work with this amazing team.”
