All the dirt. All the top secret stuff. Anything that has to do with the process of getting us to sit and watch something projected on the big screen.

THR AUGUST 17, 2017:
Paramount's New Banner Lands 'Vacation Guide to the Solar System'
Rebecca Ford wrote:The project is the first under the studio's new Paramount Players banner, run by AwesomenessTV founder Brian Robbins.

Paramount Players, the studio's new production division run by AwesomenessTV founder Brian Robbins, has acquired its first project: the book Vacation Guide to the Solar System, which will be adapted by Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley (Horrible Bosses).

Goldstein and Daley also will produce the adaptation based on the book written by Olivia Koski, head of operations for Guerilla Science and Jana Grcevich, PhD, an astronomer who has presented at the Hayden Planetarium.

Described as Jurassic Park in tone and based almost entirely on real science (a la The Martian), the story is set 50 years in the future when tourism within our solar system has become almost routine. A family trip turns into a life or death struggle to return to Earth when something goes terribly wrong.

Goldstein and Daley most recently wrote Spider-Man: Homecoming, which has grossed over $702 million worldwide to date. They've worked in a variety of genres including the R-rated comedies Horrible Bosses, which they wrote; and Vacation, which they wrote and directed. The duo most recently directed New Line's comedy thriller Game Night, starring Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams for a March 2, 2018 release. They are repped by UTA and Fourth Wall Management.

UTA brokered the deal on behalf of the authors with Rachel Vogel of Waxman Leavell.
