The spec script, which was voted #1 on the Tracking Board’s 2015 Hit List and was #5 on the 2015 Black List, was written by John J. Griffin. This is the description of the story that was released:
After the death of his father, a boy growing up on a lunar mining colony takes a trip to explore a mysterious crater, along with his four best friends, prior to being permanently relocated to another planet.
I love what I'm hearing and this seems like it would be an awesome project for Shawn Levy to take on! Sounds like the kind of film that he could also cast
