Producer Jerry Bruckheimer has acquired an untitled outer space adventure pitch from screenwriter Jon Spaihts.

No plot details were revealed, but this isn't Jon Spaihts' first time behind an outer space project. Jon Spaihts was the original screenwriter on Ridley Scott's Prometheus, when it was still considered a prequel to the 1979 classic Alien. Lost executive producer Damon Lindelof is currently rewriting the project with Ridley Scott.

Jon Spaihts also wrote The Darkest Hour, an alien-invasion thriller set in Moscow, which stars Emile Hirsch and Olivia Thirlby. The Darkest Hour will be released sometime next year.

It isn't clear when this untitled Jon Spaihts project will go into production.
