"Star Wars" franchise producer Rick McCallum and "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" producer Steve Tzirlin are teaming for the new project "R'Ha".
The high-concept feature will be an expansion of the recent short film by Kaleb Lechowski who is attached to direct this version.
The story follows an alien species trying to defend a cluster of solar systems from a menacing attack. There are no humans whatsoever in the film.
The original UK "Life on Mars" creator Matthew Graham is attached to pen the screenplay. IAM Entertainment's Raymond Brothers and Scott Glassgold will also produce.
The aim is to make it as a European film, using VFX facilities from all over Central and Eastern Europe and Asia to do a large scale film on a reasonable budget.
