Doug Liman’s upcoming space action/adventure project LUNA (which has several other names to its credit, including “Giant Leap,” and “Moon” amongst others) has once again gained heat at Paramount. This time, hopefully with enough fuel to make it into orbit. The project, which came over from Dreamworks in 2007 has been through the ropes with heavyweight champ “development hell” logging no less than six credited writers, the latest being a rewrite by Simon Kinberg (Sherlock Holmes, Jumper). And, while Liman has been aboard from day one, he’s seen talent come and go, with Jake Gyllenhaal being aboard the project at both studios before dropping out in 2010. But, now with the studio getting behind Liman in earnest, he’s using the heat to put together the ultimate space adventure cast.
And while a short list hit the trades already, we did a little snooping to discover the slightly longer short list circling agencies.
So, who’s on his short list…?
