Many of the key people behind Sony's awards season darling The Social Network are reuniting for another movie project.

The studio has picked up the movie rights to Sex on the Moon, a book proposal from Ben Mezrich, whose non-fiction tome The Accidental Billionaires was the basis of Social Network.

Scott Rudin, Michael De Luca, Kevin Spacey and Dana Brunetti, who works with Spacey at Trigger Street Productions, worked together to produce Moon.

The new book, another true tale, centers on a rising NASA scientist, who in 2004 came up with the brilliant idea of stealing moon rocks and sell them on the Internet. The goal? To impress his girlfriend.

Social Network is coming off Golden Globe wins for best picture, best director, best screenplay and best original score.
