Jake Gyllenhaal flies to the ‘Moon’

Actor teams with Liman for DreamWorks film

Jake Gyllenhaal will team with helmer Doug Liman for DreamWorks’ “Untitled Moon Project.”

Actioner revolves around a private expedition to the moon and the race for lunar colonization.

Screenplay was originally penned by Liman and John Hamburg. Author-screenwriter Mark Bowden (“Black Hawk Down”) did a complete reconception of the story and will pen the screenplay.

The project marks the return of Alli Shearmur, former Paramount co-president of production, who ankled the studio earlier this year. She will produce alongside Simon Kinberg and Liman.

Liman and one-time Universal exec Shearmur developed a strong relationship back when Liman directed “The Bourne Identity” for the studio. Shearmur also worked with Gyllenhaal when she oversaw production on “Zodiac.”

DreamWorks has targeted the project for the fast track.

Gyllenhaal will next shoot the Jim Sheridan-helmed “Brothers” opposite Tobey Maguire.

Liman, whose helming credits include “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” and “Swingers,” directed the upcoming futuristic “Jumper,” which 20th Century Fox will release early next year.
