    Take a sight on Cloverfield and Paranormal Activity, what similarity do you see on them? Yes, true, both movies are inspired from the ever-popular (nowadays) found-footage format. The format seems very intriguing and therefore most likely would work on horror movies more than any other forms of genre.

    We are happy to report to you that The Weinstein Company has picked up the rights to Brian Miller-written upcoming film Apollo 18. Apollo what you ask? Yes the Apollo Program that the NASA used to have back in the days which eventually lead to the first man landed on the moon back in 1969 (that is fact). The last Apollo Program was numbered 17 and the new movie will depicts on why NASA decided to stop the moon exploration program (fictionally of course).

    Apollo 18 speculates what if the program continues and it landed on February 1972 (again, fiction) which led the exploration team to found alien life on our moon. With The Weinstein Company behind the project, Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted) is also attached to produce while Spanish director Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego is stepping in to helm the project.

    IGN has the fist look on Apollo 18 poster and the plot is as follows:

    A quintessential Cold War story, Apollo 18 casts light on the covert and undocumented lunar mission that officially “never happened.” Bekmambetov, hired by Russia to shoot a documentary about the Russian space station, recently came across footage in its space archives that bolsters the idea that an Apollo 18 mission did, in fact, take place, and reveals startling evidence of extraterrestrial life forms. This actual footage will be part of Apollo 18, a paranormal thriller that will interpolate fact and fiction.
    Apollo 18 is in early production but hasn’t begun shooting yet for its early 2011 release, giving it a very short window for completion. The date on the poster suggest the release is on 4 March 2011.
