Production, acquisition and distribution company Cinipix is joining forces with Patricia Beninati and Michael Anderson’s Centerboro Productions to produce the sci-fi action film Newcomers and will send XCOR Aerospace’s commercial spacecraft The Lynx into space to shoot exclusive footage for the film, the Hollywood Reporter reveals.
The Lynx will be piloted by former NASA Astronaut Col. Richard A. Searfoss on an expedition that producers say marks the first Hollywood project that commissions footage from a privately owned space company.
Plot details are being kept under wraps, but “Newcomers will center on a former NASA astronaut who saves Earth from an alien invasion with help from the commercial space industry.”
Beninati and Anderson adapted the screenplay from an original story and script by Beninati. Cinipix CEO Todd Slater (Ray, Raze) will produce alongside executive producer Mat Hayden. They join producers James MacLean (Archetype Entertainment) and Jacob Silver, who originally developed the movie package with Beninati and Anderson.
Producers are now talking to directors with an eye toward starting principal photography in the first quarter of 2014.
