The new Space race continues with the Weinstein Company hurrying Apollo 18 [their new found-footage space film] into production. Director Gonzalo López-Gallego will helm the project written by Brian Miller and produced by Timur Bekmambetov. The film is centered on "real" found footage from a secret and covert mission to the moon which ends up in revealing evidence of new lifeforms. Apollo 18 has thus far been responsible for 2 similar films being put in turn around.
Apollo 18 has basically been responsible for Warner Bros dropping Olatunde Osunsanmi’s Dark Moon, and Roland Emmerich dropping The Zone basically because they are about the same thing. Now the Weinstein's race is on to have director Gonzalo López-Gallego bring it home in a matter of three months. This isn't a joke, the Weinstein Company is planning to have this released before Oren Peli's Area 51, which is scheduled for release sometime next year.
