U has ‘Stars’ in its eyes

Di Bonaventura, Wagner reach their 'Destination'

Universal Pictures has acquired screen rights to “The Stars My Destination,” a 1955 Alfred Bester novel that’s considered a seminal sci-fi work. Lorenzo di Bonaventura is producing with Raymond Wagner.

Protag is the sole survivor of a wrecked spaceship that drifts through deep space. When a passing vessel ignores his distress signal, he becomes obsessed with revenge and ultimately uncovers a secret destined to change the course of history.

Di Bonaventura has a deal at Paramount, where he just teamed with Scott Rudin on “Stoneheart,” the Charlie Fletcher fantasy novel. Di Bonaventura previously produced “Doom” at U.
