Voltage Pictures in ‘Alter’ space

Sci-fi spec built on alien encounter near black hole

Voltage Pictures has optioned “Alter,” a sci-fi spec from John and Thomas Sonntag, and set it up with Benderspink and Stephen L’Heureux.

Script centers on a team of scientists aboard a space station monitoring activity around a black hole when they receive a transmission showing their deaths at the hands of mysterious aliens.

A search for a director will be under way shortly.

Voltage recently wrapped Robert Redford’s “The Company You Keep.”

Benderspink recently wrapped production on “Burt Wonderstone” for New Line, where the banner has a first-look pact. The company has “Jitters” set up at Paramount, “Business Trip” at Universal and “We’re the Millers” at New Line.

The Sonntags are repped by UTA and Mosaic.
