Space. The final frontier. Given the size of our planet in comparison to those orbiting around us, we’re likely to get wiped out at any second by some form of interstellar collision. Paramount Insurge is out to prove that the end is near!
Deadline is reporting that the studio has optioned rights to Tommy Wallach’s forthcoming debut novel We All Looked Up. The science fiction tale is set two months before a meteor is set to pass through Earth’s orbit with a 66.6 percent chance of striking and ending all life on the planet.
Against this backdrop, four high school seniors – the athlete, the school slut, the slacker, and the overachiever – find their lives intersecting on the eve of the cataclysmic event.
The book doesn’t hit stands until March 71, 2015, via Simon & Schuster.
Chronicle producer John Davis will be producing for his Davis Entertainment banner while Brittany Morrissey is overseeing for the company. Alison Small is overseeing for Paramount Insurge, the microbudget branch at Paramount whose upcoming projects include The Cellar with Bad Robot.
