The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Palm Springs screenwriter Andy Siara has been tapped to write an untitled science fiction film for Apple Studios with Andy Samberg set to star. Details on the sci-fi film are currently undisclosed in the report but is apparent based on idea from Bojack Horseman creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg.
They’re about to start their search for a director.
Interesting enough, the producing team alongside Samberg will include Noah Hawley and Ben Stiller. Noah Hawley recently wrapped-up airing Season 4 of Fargo and is currently working with Ridley Scott on an original Earthbound series set within the Alien franchise for FX on Hulu.
Palm Springs seems to be on a path for some awards consideration which likely helped spark Apple’s desire to get involved with the untitled project.
PALM SPRINGS – When carefree Nyles (Andy Samberg) and reluctant maid of honor Sarah (Cristin Milioti) have a chance encounter at a Palm Springs wedding, things get complicated when they find themselves unable to escape the venue, themselves, or each other. The film stars Andy Samberg, Cristin Milioti, J.K. Simmons, Meredith Hagner, Camila Mendes, Tyler Hoechlin, and Peter Gallagher.
