Jake Gyllenhaal will team with “The Bourne Identity” and “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” helmer Doug Liman for DreamWorks’ “Untitled Moon Project” reports Variety.
Actioner revolves around a private expedition to the moon and the race for lunar colonization.
Though 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.
DreamWorks has targeted the project for the fast track once Gyllenhaal finishes work on the Jim Sheridan-helmed “Brothers” opposite Tobey Maguire.
