Paramount Pictures is teaming up with J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot company once again for the sci-fi thriller God Particle. Oren Uziel (The Kitchen Sink) wrote the screenplay, although it doesn't seem that J.J. Abrams will direct.

The story centers on a physics experiment with a particle accelerator that causes the Earth to seemingly disappear into thin air. The plot follows an American space station crew set floating adrift with no home to go back to, when they discover a European spacecraft on their radar.

The studio plans to shoot this project on a budget of just $5 million, and they will likely release it under their Paramount Insurge micro-budget division. No production schedule was released.

Oren Uziel also wrote the screenplay for Kevin Tancharoen's popular short film Mortal Kombat: Rebirth, which lead into the web series Mortal Kombat: Legacy.
