Paramount Picks Up Sci-Fi Film HYPERDRIVE

A sci-fi spec script getting picked up is kind of rare, but Hyperdrive was able to pull if off and after receiving interest from multiple studios, the project will land at Paramount.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the script written by Morgan Jurgenson and David Daniels will be produced by Mary Parent through her Disruption Entertainment shingle. Jurgenson is also known for co-writing the indie horror-comedy Tucker and Dale vs. Evil. Unfortunately for me, the film has nothing to do with the BBC series starring Nick Frost.

The story of Hyperdrive revolves around a “tough cop who recruits a geeky sci-fi author to help him track down a mysterious murder witness. While on their search, they find themselves in the middle of a space opera playing out on Earth.”

The script is sometimes called a cross between The Fifth Element and 48 Hrs. I’m hoping there’s also a bit of buddy cop style movie in there somewhere.

Cale Boyter, who brought the project to Elizabeth Raposo, vp of production at Paramount, will be shepherding the film working alongside Parent.
