J.J. Abrams’ Space Thriller ‘God Particle’ Gets 2017 Release Date

Paramount and J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions have set a Feb. 24, 2017, release date for the science-fiction thriller “God Particle.”

The story, set in the near future, centers on a team of astronauts on a space station making a terrifying discovery that challenges all they know about the fabric of reality, as they desperately fight for their survival. Nigerian-American filmmaker Julius Onah is directing.

No cast members have been announced yet.

The studio and Bad Robot have been developing the project since 2012. At that point, Onah was attached to direct from a script by Oren Uziel with the film being developed through the low-budget Paramount InSurge label.

Paramount shuttered Insurge nearly a year ago.

Paramount-based Abrams produced “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” and the upcoming “Star Trek Beyond” tentpoles for the studio along with producing and directing the Disney smash “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” He’s a producer on the upcoming “10 Cloverfield Lane,” which opens March 11 with Dan Trachtenberg directing.
