Scribes suit up for COSMONAUT
Writers to adapt novel
Husband-and-wife writing team Robert and Michelle King have decided to adapt Peter McAllister's novel COSMONAUT into a feature film screenplay. Warner Bros. first optioned the rights to the science fiction thriller back in the spring of 2003 for HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER producer Mace Neufeld to develop.

Set onboard the International Space Station, the story begins when an American astronaut is found murdered and the only clue as to who may have committed the crime is the final word left by the deceased: "cosmonaut", implicating one, or all, of the station's four Russian astronauts are behind the crime. Shortly thereafter NASA sends up an investigator to find out who committed the murder, but what he finds is evidence of a larger crime about to be committed.

This is the Kings' first theatrical project together, with Robert King having written the 1994 film SPEECHLESS and 1997's RED CORNER. He also directed the made for television remake of ANGELS IN THE INFIELD four years ago.
