“Apollo 18″ scribe Brian Miller and Ryan Murphy, the co-creator of “American Horror Story” and “Glee,” are set to pen an untitled sci-fi/horror movie for Sony Pictures.
Murphy will produce with John Palermo (“Drive”), and story details remain under wraps.
Murphy is currently balancing two TV shows in addition to casting his next feature “The Normal Heart,” an adaptation of Larry Kramer’s AIDS-related play that will star Mark Ruffalo, Julia Roberts, Alec Baldwin, Matt Bomer and Jim Parsons. With a summer start date looming, Murphy is targeting A-list actors including Viggo Mortensen for the role of Bruce Niles, a gay ex-Green Beret.
Miller wrote the found footage sci-fi pic “Apollo 18″ for The Weinstein Company and is also writing an untitled sci-fi thriller for Paramount and producer Brad Weston.
Palermo, who recently produced the Ryan Gosling-starrer “Drive” and the hit superhero pic “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” will next produce James Mangold’s “Wolverine” sequel for 20th Century Fox.
CAA reps Murphy and Miller, who is also repped by 3 Arts Entertainment and Ginsburg Daniels.
