Paramount Pictures acquires Clark Baker's short film Vessel Paramount Pictures has acquired director Clark Baker's sci-fi/horror short Vessel for a feature-length adaptation. Stephen Susco (The Possession) will write the screenplay, with Clark Barker set to make his feature directorial debut.

The story centers on a group of airplane passengers who must fight for their lives when a deadly, supernatural force is discovered on board. The short employs a blend of practical creature effects with CGI, which was funded through Kickstarter. Vessel has been compared to such thrillers as Alien, The Thing, and Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
