‘Wanted’ Director Timur Bekmambetov To Produce ‘Apollo 18’ For The Weinstein Co.
  |  @   |  

It’s been officially announced that recently, at the Astana International Action Film Festival screenplay competition, The Weinstein Company acquired the rights to a movie called Apollo 18, written by Brian Miller.

The movie tells the story of NASA’s Apollo 18 mission to our moon, which was actually one of the many canceled missions in reality…or so we’ve been told. In the movie, the idea that the mission actually went ahead as planned is presented. It will be shot documentary style, to look as if it is proof of the mission actually happening and showing undiscovered footage from what the crew on that mission found, including “disturbing” proof of other life forms.

Apollo 18 is set to be produced by Timur Bekmambetov, the Russian director responsible for movies like Wanted and stylized vampire films, Night Watch and Day Watch. Bekmambetov is the one who founded the Astana International Film Festival screenplay competition at which the script was discovered and acquired.

The movie is already set to begin production in December, with a release planned in March of 2011. It will be directed by Trevor Cawood, who will be making his feature directorial debut, but has worked in the visual effects department on titles like The Matrix Reloaded, The Matrix Revolutions, and The Ladykillers.
