Paramount Nabs Hot Sci-Fi Script From Chris Gorak (Exclusive)
Paramount has nabbed writer-director Chris Gorak's sci-fi spec script Attach.
Gorak, a longtime production designer who segued to the director's chair for the 2006 thriller Right at Your Door, also will direct Attach. Adam Schroeder (Chronicle) is producing.
The script came with a visual test that Gorak directed and sparked a bidding war, with multiple studios involved.
Plot details are being kept under wraps, but it is described as in a similar vein as Chronicle in that it is a big visual concept with a young cast at the center of it.
Chronicle was a hit for 20th Century Fox in 2012. The $12 million sci-fi film took in $127 million worldwide.
Gorak, who was the production designer on such films as Lords of Dogtown, most recently directed the teen-led sci-fi thriller The Darkest Hour for producer Timur Bekmambetov.
Gorak is repped by UTA.
