According to Variety, Nolan is the latest writer to bring his take to an action film about lunar colonization that has Jake Gyllenhaal attached to star.
Doug Liman, who is producing and directing the film, wrote an original screenplay with John Hamburg (I Love You, Man). Black Hawk Down book author Mark Bowden revamped that script, then Dan Mazeau did a new version off material compiled from the story work of Liman, Bowden and Simon Kinberg, who also is producing.
The project originally was developed at DreamWorks, but it stayed with Paramount when DreamWorks left the studio in September.
No production date has been set.
