Form and Fuller will produce under their Fully Formed Entertainment banner, which signed a first-look deal at Paramount last summer.
Wilson adapted from his own short story, which follows a single dad and Nasa physicist who discovers a black hole that will strike earth in a matter of days. The problem is that no one, including his colleagues at Nasa, believes him. The one person that trusts him is his 10-year-old daughter, but that bond is now being threatened by a different force. Eric finds himself trying to save both his relationship with Marie and a populace unwilling to heed his warnings of the impending disaster.
Several bidders were chasing the spec, including Amblin, J.J. Abrams, Sony and MGM, before Paramount eventually landed it.
