Paramount has picked up an untitled project from Transformers franchise director Michael Bay and his Platinum Dunes production shingle.
Story details for the project are being held close to the vest but the Hollywood Reporter is stating that it is “a real science adventure thriller with an undersea component.” I would hazard a guess that there will probably be numerous large explosions too.
The screenplay is being worked on by Tom Wheeler and Robbie Thompson. Wheeler has previously co-written 2011’s animated Puss In Boots and created the short-lived superhero series The Cape for NBC while Thompson served as The Cape‘s story editor before moving on to the series Supernatural.
Currently Bay is only serving as a producer for the project, though it is not ruled out that he could direct.
