Excited by the success of the "big idea" movie Inception, Warner Bros. has given the green light to Expulsion, a spec script from bestselling novelist Gregg Hurwitz. An act of terror destroys the Earth, leaving a handful of human survivors to escape to a planet beyond our solar system. (And how a ruined Earth furnishes the technology and resources to travel all the way outside the solar system is something we'll have to wait and see, I guess.) [Deadline]
