Orphan's Dawn

This is very hot off the press. According to Variety, in a high-six-figure deal 20th century fox has optioned Orphan's Dawn , a spec cript by Josh Friedman.

The futuristic sci-fi film will be produced by John Davis and Wyck Godfrey of Davis Entertainment. That company teamed with producer Laurence Mark last year on Fox's sci-fi hit I, Robot.

Orphan's Dawn takes place on a city-sized starship, which has been floating in space for a century, its inhabitants seeking a planet on which to settle after their own world was rendered uninhabitable. Time is running out, and a struggle for control breaks out. Script has been crafted to lead to multiple installments if the first one works.

Friedman also did the rewrites on Sahara and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

He also did the script for War of the Worlds which was rewritten by David Koepp after Steven Speilberg got involved.

This is an option, so there is a long road till it's a movie.
