FilmNation Entertainment and Lava Bear Films are teaming to finance, produce and handle worldwide sales on Nic Mathieu's sci-fi thriller "Story of Your Life."
Based on an award-winning short story by Ted Chiang, the story deals with aliens landing all around the globe. A linguist is quickly recruited by the US government in a race to decipher their intentions on Earth.
Eric Heisserer ("The Thing," "A Nightmare on Elm Street") is penning the script while Shawn Levy, Dan Levine, Aaron Ryder and Karen Lunder will produce. Shooting will kick off next year.
