Paramount, Jerry Bruckheimer Developing Science-Fiction Movie ‘Origin’

3 January 2017 5:44 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paramount Pictures is developing the science-fiction movie “Origin” with Jerry Bruckheimer producing and Joachim Ronning directing.

Ronning is in post-production on Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man Tell No Tales,” which he co-directed with Espen Sandberg. Rønning will also write the script with his brother Andreas Rønning.

Paramount, which made a pre-emptive purchase of Ronning’s pitch, is keeping details of the plot under wraps. Bruckheimer, who has produced all five “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies, will produce “Origin” through his Paramount-based Jerry Bruckheimer Films company.

Bruckheimer began his career at Paramount with Don Simpson during the 1980s with “Beverly Hills Cop,” “Top Gun” and “Flashdance” and then spent nearly two decades at Disney with “Armageddon,” “The Rock,” “Con Air,” “Crimson Tide,”  “National Treasure”  and the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise with Johnny Depp. After a costly flop with Depp’s “The Lone Ranger,” Bruckeimer returned to Paramount »
