My well-placed friend in Hollywood, my eyes and ears there, and ever on the look out for new cli fi movies on the drawing board (er, storyboard) or coming out soon or in near future, she tells me today:
Doing a quick scan, there is a Gerard Butler film coming out in early 2017 titled ''Geostorm.''
THEME: The cli-fi flick centers on a satellite designer who tries to prevent disaster when the world’s climate control satellites fail to function.
VARIETY the Hollywood trade paper says: Warner Bros. has pushed Gerard Butler drama “Geostorm” back three months to Jan. 13, 2017.
IMBD movie data base says:
The studio originally dated the film for Oct. 21, 2016.
“Geostorm” marks the feature directorial debut of Dean Devlin, who teamed with Roland Emmerich to produce 1996’s “Independence Day.”
Devlin’s Electric Entertainment is producing “Geostorm” with Skydance Productions.
Producers are Devlin, Skydance’s David Ellison and Dana Goldberg and Electric Entertainment’s Marc Roskin and Rachel Olschan.
Warner Bros. picked up the project after Skydance developed it. Devlin also wrote “Geostorm,” which centers on a satellite designer who tries to prevent disaster when the world’s climate control satellites fail to function.
