"Atlantis Rising" to be Like "Aliens" and "The Abyss"

Posted: December 11th, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Atlantis Rising" to be Like "Aliens" and "The Abyss"Submit Comment
Writer-director Joby Harold (Awake) is negotiating to write the adaptation of the comic book "Atlantis Rising" for DreamWorks. Len Wiseman (Underworld, Live Free or Die Hard) is attached to direct the apocalyptic science fiction project.

Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are producing along with Platinum Studios chairman and CEO Scott Mitchell Rosenberg, who created the original "Atlantis Rising" five-part series.

In "Atlantis," an underworld civilization is discovered after seismic rumbles announce its presence. Hostilities with Earth's land-dwellers ensue.

"In all the classic versions of this kind of movie, the threat is always from the stars," Orci said. "The idea that it's somehow our cousins who went off in a different path of evolution who have been here, literally, underneath our oceans. That's fascinating, the idea of secrets right under your nose."

The newly independent DreamWorks hopes to have "Atlantis" -- envisioned as a big-budget, effects-driven sci-fi war movie in the vein of the James Cameron-directed "Aliens" and "The Abyss" -- in theaters as a summer 2011 tentpole.

I was hopeful after reading that Wiseman is attached to the film, but after seeing that Orci and Kurtzman, America's two most juvenile big budget screenwriters, are also attached, I decided to pass. ""The idea that it's somehow our cousins who went off in a different path of evolution who have been here, literally, underneath our oceans." This idea is old. It has been done to death in a variety of ways. Can't I just get some good hard sci-fi? WTF is the problem?

Did Mink just make an intelligent statement? ;) It was pretty much grammatically correct as well

I guess that settles it, I was a little nervous when Chinese Democracy actually was released but after reading his comment I know it is true. The end is here...

This sounds good just make it super creepy if they get someone in the middle of the ocean.
