Fox prepared for 'Doomsday'


In a seven-figure deal, Fox has picked up "Doomsday Protocol," an original spec by Shane Salerno.

Plot details are being kept under wraps, but it is known to be a epic science fiction adventure in the vein of "The Seven Samurai" involving a group of aliens and humans with various abilities who are brought together to save Earth.

Fox's Alex Young developed the project with Salerno and will oversee.

Salerno, whose credits include "Alien vs. Predator: Requiem," "Ghost Rider" and "Armageddon," is repped by Endeavor. (partialdiff)
