Paramount Pictures will decide whether or not to make Morgan Freeman’s long-percolating Rendezvous With Rama, a proposed film adaptation of Arthur C. Clarke’s 1973 SF novel, Variety (subscription required) has reported. Freeman and producing partner Lori McCreary, through their Revelations Entertainment company, have been developing the film with director David Fincher (Alien 3).
Bruce McKenna is writing the script. Paramount gets a crack at the project under its new two-year, first-look deal with Revelations, Freeman and McCreary.
