20th Century Fox has acquired a spec script for a big sci-fi film project called Ascension. The studio is looking to bring Kingsman: The Secret Service and X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn in to helm it.
The movie is described as a disaster film that follows “a scientist who must save the world after gravity is erased from the Earth’s atmosphere.” It definitely sounds like the kind of project that Vaughn would have fun with.
I wish I knew more about it, but that’s all the info we have at the moment. As you know, Vaughn is a talented director that has a knack for directing badass action films, and I’d be very interested to see what he would do with a sci-fi project like this.
