Abrams is producing the sci-fi thriller, set on a space station.

Paramount has staked out a release date for God's Particle — Feb. 24, 2017.

The movie, to be produced by J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions, tells the story of a team of American astronauts on a space station who make a terrifying discovery that challenges all they know about the fabric of reality, even as they desperately fight for their survival.

Nigerian-born filmmaker Julian Onah is set to direct the sci-fii thriller from a script by Oren Uziel.

Little else is known about the project, which has yet to be cast.

So far, God's Particle has the Feb. 24-26 weekend to itself. It opens a week after Maze Runner: The Death Cure and Bad Boys 3, and two weeks after Fifty Shades Darker, the LEGO Batman Movie and The Mountain Between Us.
