The Weinstein Company has stepped up and acquired the very interesting Apollo 18, the sci-fi thriller based on the screenplay by Brian Miller, winner of the inaugural Astana International Action Film Festival screenplay competition, founded by Wanted director Timur Bekmambetov. At first it reads like another expedition Movie but its far from that.
Trevor Cawood is set to direct the project. Bekmambetov and Michele Wolkoff, President of Development for Bekmambetov Projects Ltd. (BPL) will produce the film. Set to be shot documentary style, the film unearths lost footage from Apollo 18’s undocumented and covert mission to the moon, revealing disturbing new evidence of other life forms. Bekmambetov, hired by Russia to shoot a documentary about the Russian space station, recently came across footage in its space archives that bolsters the idea that an Apollo 18 mission did, in fact, take place, and reveals startling evidence of extraterrestrial life forms. This actual footage will be part of Apollo 18, that will interpolate fact and fiction. The film is slated to begin production this December for a March release date.
This is not the first time the Apollo missions have wrought suspicious attention. The Apollo 20 mission filmed the dark side of the moon where allegedly a very large extraterrestrial vehicle appeared to lie wrecked on the moon's surface. This 'wreckage' was apparently first captured on film by Apollo 15 in 1971 which shows a moon panorama with what appears to be a large elliptical object on the moon's surface in an official NASA photo. Check it out below. Maybe this is an idea on what kind of footage has been uncovered. Although I would not rule out the glass tunnels on Mars. Don't get me started.
