A quick history lesson: NASA sent Apollo 11 through 17 to the moon. Apollo 18 was planned, but never launched. Certain people (crazy people) believe that Apollo 18 did actually go to the moon, but was covered up, probably for the same reasons that the whole program was faked, and I am not nearly drunk enough to follow the logic of those two truths co-existing.
But now, nearly 40 years later, evidence! Deadline is reporting that the Weinsteins have bought the rights to the Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted) produced ‘found footage’ film Apollo 18. As you probably had trouble guessing (because let’s face it, Moon landing conspiracy theorists are not the most imaginative assholes on the planet), the movie is about the astronauts of Apollo 18 encountering alien life. Wacky hijinks ensue. Unfortunately, Bekmambetov is only producing, as it is being written and directed by a couple of visual effects guys. I assume this happens from time to time, and always goes swimmingly.
In related news, how stupid are people that believe the Moon landings were shot on a sound stage? The correct answer is “Fuck you for this topic of conversation even existing, asshole.”
