Clark Baker's sci-fi short Vessel is headed to the big screen. Variety reports that Paramount Pictures has acquired the rights to turn the project into a feature film with Baker directing.

Likened to Alien, The Thing and Close Encounters of the Third Kind, the short blends practical creature effects with modern VFX, telling the story of Liberty Airlines' Flight 298 and its passengers. Shortly after takeoff, the passengers encounter an otherworldly force and are thrown into a fight for their lives.

Stephen Susco (The Grudge, Texas Chainsaw 3D) will provide the screenplay for the feature version.
