Studios React to Busy “Found Footage” Market

Two major shifts for the alien projects

I voiced my thoughts right here about the sudden clash of “found footage” films involving aliens.

The Weinstein Company has Apollo 18 on the way, but where was that going to put Warner Bros. Dark Moon, both handling similar subject matter.

Well, Warner Bros. kicked it to the curb and put Olatunde Osunsanmi’s into turnaround. Joel Silver’s Dark Castle, however, is close to financing and making the film which Warner Bros. will then distribute.

Dark Moon concerns eerie alien encounter footage taken during the Apollo 17 mission.

Meanwhile, another “found footage” alien flick, Roland Emmerich’s The Zone, has collapsed and will not be made after all.
