Cop Meets Space Opera In “Hyperdrive”

Paramount Pictures has acquired Morgan Jurgenson and David Daniels’ sci-fi spec script “Hyperdrive” says Heat Vision.

The story follows a tough cop who recruits a geeky sci-fi author to help him track down a mysterious murder witness. While on their search, they find themselves in the middle of a space opera playing out on Earth.

The film is described as a hybrid of “The Fifth Element” and “48 Hrs”. Mary Parent will produce.
