**SAME DAY UPDATE: Patrick Lussier And Laeta Kalogridis Writing Sci-Fi Adventure For Skydance

**SAME DAY UPDATE: I just got in touch directly with Patrick and he says he is writing and not directing this one, so he cannot comment on whether or not this project will be 3D. This writing gig is totally hush hush for the time being so don't expect too much more to trickle out for some time. But, I'm on it. These two writers are at the top of their game so I can't wait for more official news! Nice work landing these guys Skydance...

I've got to let you guys in on a secret (not so secret now) Sci-Fi Adventure project
being written right now by a friend of mine, director Patrick Lussier (DRIVE ANGRY, MY BLOODY VALENTINE 3D) and writer Laeta Kalogridis (SHUTTER ISLAND, AVATAR). Skydance Production has tapped them to write something ORIGINAL on an idea that has gesticulated for some time at the company.

Obviously the pair make a deliciously insidious duo as Lussier brings a horror / thriller and native 3D writing / directing background while Kalogridis has been involved in James Cameron projects like AVATAR and BATTLE ANGEL.

No word on whether or not Lussier will direct this project, but I am hopeful as that guarantees a nice hard edge and at least a serious look at a native 3D production.

This project could be anything really, but it's the writers and the production house that have me excited. Skydance also has projects like WORLD WAR Z, GI JOE: RETALIATION and STAR TREK 2 (a 3D conversion) in the hopper to name just a few.

More on this exciting development when I get it!
