08.10.10 by REELZ
Twentieth Century Fox are reportedly in negotiations to pick up John Landis' next project Chronicles. Landis — the man behind National Lampoon's Animal House and The Blues Brothers — is set to produce the movie, along with scriptwriter son Max Landis. First-time director Josh Trank is also on board, with John Davis (Predator) and Adam Schroeder (Sleepy Hollow) producing.
is the story of 3 Portland teenagers who, after being exposed to a strange substance found in the woods, begin to develop superpowers. Fun team work ensues, before life's little problems turn the friends against each other, resulting in what is sure to be a superhero movie with a difference.
Rumor has it that Chronicles will be filmed in a hand-held documentary style, much like surprise box office hits Paranormal Activity and Cloverfield. Expect a theater release for this one no earlier than 2012.
