Clash of the Titans screenwriter Travis Beacham is sitting pretty on this Memorial Day Eve, as his latest screenplay Pacific Rim has been acquired by Legendary Pictures. Deadline is reporting that Beacham's sci-fi epic earned him a high six-figures.

The film will be set in a future that finds Earth under attack from a group of malicious beasties. In an effort to rally the One World Order, all the governments of the world must come together to stop this threat using highly advanced technology. At this time, Beacham has only written a very detailed twenty-five page treatment. But the film is already being readied as a summer event film by Legendary.
