Paramount Pictures and Bad Robot have found a director for the intriguing sci-fi pic God Particle.  Per Variety, the film “follows an American space station crew left abandoned after a problem with a Hadron accelerator causes Earth to vanish entirely.”  It sounds a bit like Danny Boyle's Sunshine, though seeing Earth completely disappear might be a bit more disturbing/terrifying for this space crew.  J.J. Abrams is set to produce, and newcomer Julius Onah has been hired to tackle directing duties with a script by Oren Uziel (Mortal Kombat: Rebirth).  Having helmed a number of critically lauded shorts, Onah recently made his feature directorial debut with the thriller The Girl Is in Trouble.  God Particle will be developed through Paramount’s Insurge arm, and thus will be made for a budget around $5-10 million. As with every Abrams project, further plot details are being kept firmly under wraps.  The premise is highly intriguing, »
