Paramount Pictures has found a new writer to breathe some life into Abducted. Deadline reports that John Glenn has been hired to re-imagine the sci-fi thriller originally conceived by John Heffernan. Disruption Entertainment’s Mary Parent and Cale Boyter are producing the film that centers around "an alien abduction of a group of average Americans who decide to take on the aliens and battle their way off the extrarerrestrial craft."
Glenn was responsible for writing initial drafts of Clash of the Titans and Eagle Eye, and is writing the hour-long Treasure Island for NBC. I am interested to see what take he has on this new project, but am a bit worried because Titans and Eagle Eye were not too good. What are your thoughts?
