Our Greatest Space Enemy Could Be Right OverheadS

One of the writers of Monsters, Inc. is working on a new science fiction movie called Earth Vs. Moon. Universal paid high-six figures for the pitch from writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, who also created Spike TV's The Joe Schmo Show and are writing a new movie, Zombieland. (Reese was a writer for Monsters, and Wernick won three Emmys for his work on TV news.) I talked to a rep at Scott Stuber, the production company overseeing the project, and they said it's just a pitch, and no script has been written yet. We'll hopefully have details about the film's satellite-blasting plot soon. [Hollywood Reporter]
