Soderstrom to stay 'Awake' for Nash

Warner Bros. Pictures has tapped Bob Soderstrom to pen the script for Jon Chu’s futuristic fantasy, tentatively titled “Falling Awake,” from reality TV veteran Bruce Nash’s production company.

Film marks Nash’s continued foray into the feature film biz after partnering with producer Robert Kosberg. The duo also have projects set up at Revolution Studios, New Line and Paramount.

Warners and Nash Entertainment are keeping plot details for “Awake” under wraps.

Producers of “Awake” are Nash and Chu. Kosberg and Neal Israel (“Finding Neverland”), who developed the concept, are exec producing.

Chu was scooped up by Sony to direct a remake of the studio’s “Bye Bye Birdie,” only to be taken off the project last year due to the pic’s escalating budget and risky nature.
