Warner Bros. and Michael Bay are gaining momentum on their “Cosmic Motors” project, tapping Kyle Ward to write the screenplay.

Drew Crevello and Cate Adams are overseeing “Cosmic Motors” for Warner Bros.

The project is based on Daniel Simon’s 2007 concept art book of the same name that features futuristic vehicle designs. Simon has worked in Hollywood as the lead vehicle designer on “Tron: Uprising” and “Captain America: The First Avenger” and as a concept illustrator on “Oblivion.”

Ward is currently writing “Arabian Knights,” which was based on an original pitch, for Universal with Imagine producing, and recently wrapped work on “Underworld V.”

Bay is on board to produce “Cosmic Motors.” He directed “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” the only 2014 movie to gross over $1 billion worldwide, and produced “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” and “The Purge: Anarchy.”

Ward is repped by WME and managed by Management 360.
