In a story from Variety, Lionsgate is teaming up again with director Peter Cornwell (The Haunting in Connecticut) on The Panopticon.

The sci-fi script was written by Craig Rosenberg.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian are going to produce with Rosenberg serving as executive producer. Lionsgate grabbed the project as a spec script, and they will now finance the film and control worldwide rights. The hope is for the film to go into production in 2010.

The story follows "a salesman receives a pre-recorded message from himself that tells him the world is about to end and only he can save it."
