The Island: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ewan McGregor is headed for The Island. The British star is in negotiations to topline the DreamWorks sci-fi film, which Michael Bay is set to direct.

Originating as a spec script by Caspian Tredwell-Owen, The Island follows a "harvested being" who makes a bid to escape the utopian facility where he is being kept.

Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are on board as screenwriters. DreamWorks is heading for a fall start.
