Deadline reports that Invertigo is a large scale project that has been fast-tracked by the studio about “A long lost Nasa space probe mysterious crash lands in New York City, apparently under the influence of a “dark energy” force that drives the universe’s expansion. But the scientific curiosity soon becomes a disaster of cataclysmic proportions as Earth’s own gravity is disrupted and eventually reversed, causing skyscrapers and bridges to be ripped from the ground and rivers to rain from the sky. A team led by the Office of Emergency Management supervisor is forced to mount a desperate mission into upside-down
Deadline report that Caruso will be taking the director’s chair for “Invertigo,” a sci-fi epic with a script by fanboy punching bag Ehren Kruger ("Transformers") and Bradley Cramp about a Nasa satellite that crash-lands in New York City, creating a “reverse-g vortex” where gravity on earth becomes inverted.
Ehren Kruger and Bradley Cramp penned the story of a Nasa satellite that crash-lands in New York City, creating a “reverse-g vortex” where gravity is inverted.
A rescue mission soon gets underway. Neal Moritz will produce and production wouldn't kick off until 2013.
It sounds like one of those bad disaster movie from the 1990's like Armageddon, Volcano, and Deep Impact where a team of unlikely people are brought together to stop some kind of ridiculously epic disaster from destroying the world, and they end up saving it at the last minute under dire circumstances. The inverted gravity does add a pretty cool touch to the story though.
The movie will be developed as a big tent pole production that is being put on the fast track to production.
The film is about Nasa satellite that crash-lands in New York City, and it creates a "reverse-g vortex" where gravity is inverted. It imperils the planet if a rescue mission fails. Ehren Kruger and Bradley Cramp wrote the script.
Neal H. Moritz is producing for Sony with Daniel Bobkur. The director is best known for his work on I Am Number Four and Disturbia.
This project is still in development.
It’s been about nine months since anything regarding Mr. D.J. Caruso came across our virtual desk, but he’s coming back… with a vengeance. (No, probably not.) As Deadline reports, the Disturbia helmer has signed with Sony Pictures for Invertigo, a high-concept sci-fi feature scripted by Ehren Kruger (Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Scream 4) and Bradley Cramp.
Our initial report was bereft of any goods on the story, so let’s get down to that before any directing business comes into play. As it stands, Invertigo centers on the effects of a Nasa satellite crashing in New York City — the creation of a “reverse-g vortex” that, as the title would indicate, inverts gravity — and the ensuing rescue effort to stop it. (I’ll just admit it right now: conveyed with the proper visual pinache, that could look rather incredible.
Ever since debut director Brian Beletic signed on for the project in early January, we’ve known that the basic plot goes like so:
“A small group of young, super adventure/explorers, each with a specific skill set, are brought to the remote backcountry of the Pennine Alps under various guises for a trek across one of the planet’s remaining untouched realms.
