Warner Bros. has picked up “Dark Moon,” a spec from scribe Olatunde Osunsanmi, for Akiva Goldsman produce via his Weed Road shingle. Osunsanmi is also on board to direct the movie.
“Moon” falls into the burgeoning genre of “found footage movies,” which are purported to be reels or tapes or files found after the person operating the camera expired.
“Moon” takes on the idea that manned moon missions did not stop with Apollo 17 and follows a black ops post-Apollo mission sent to the moon to explore previously classified discoveries and its unintended and disturbing consequences.
The sale included a progess-to-production component.
Osunsanmi, repped by CAA and Caliber, wrote and directed the Milla Jovovich thriller “The Fourth Kind.” He is currently attached to direct “The Commuter” for Gold Circle, and adapted “The Orphanage” (based on the novel by Robert Buettner) for Davis Entertainment.
