Paramount Bullish on Cheap, Top-Secret Alien Movies


They've already got J.J. Abrams's $30 million Spielberg-honoring Super 8 in production, but Paramount just bought a spec script for something called Confidential Alien Project (presumably that's a working title), described as a modestly budgeted cross between Paranormal Activity and Cloverfield, to be produced by Michael Bay and directed by Bobby Glickert. Kinda makes you nostalgic for alien movies with production values and disclosable log lines. [Deadline]
