Paramount Pictures has picked up the right to a sci-fi script called Hyperdrive. The story is being described a cross between The Fifth Element and 48 Hrs. The script for the film is written by Morgan Jurgenson (Tucker and Dale vs. Evil) and David Daniels.
Hyperdrive tells the story of a tough cop who recruits a geeky sci-fi author to help him track down a mysterious murder witness. While on their search, they find themselves in the middle of a space opera playing out on Earth.
It has nearly the same premise as the TV show Castle, which stars Nathan Fillion. A geeky author working with the police to help solve crimes.
This film has an interesting premise. What do you think?
