The story follows a satellite designer (Butler) who, when the world’s climate-controlling satellites malfunction, has to work together with his estranged brother to save the world from a man-made storm of epic proportions.

Geostorm will be the feature directorial debut for Devlin, who co-wrote Independence Day and 1998's Godzilla.

The project was being developed independently by David Ellison’s Skydance Productions before Warner Bros. picked it up. Skydance remains involved and is producing with Devlin’s Electric Entertainment.

Warner Bros.' dating announcement comes just moments after Paramount also slated a film -- a reboot of Beverly Hills Cop -- for March 25, 2016.
