Director DJ Caruso to suffer from Invertigo

DJ Caruso looking thoughtful

So I don't know what this means for his supposedly "done deal" to direct PREACHER, but DJ Caruso (I AM NUMBER FOUR) is currently in talks to helm an original script by Ehren Kruger (TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON) and Bradley Cramp called INVERTIGO. 

The script is notable for being a large scale story that was bought while still in spec form, and deals with "a long lost NASA space probe [that] mysterious crash lands in New York City, apparently under the influence of a 'dark energy' force that drives the universe's expansion. But the scientific curiosity soon becomes a disaster of cataclysmic proportions as Earth's own gravity is disrupted and eventually reversed, causing skyscrapers and bridges to be ripped from the ground and rivers to rain from the sky. A team led by the Office of Emergency Management supervisor is forced to mount a desperate mission into upside-down Manhattan to avert the entire planet's destruction."  Due to the movie's aforementioned large scale, production isn't expected to begin until the beginning of 2013 at the earliest even as a March 7th, 2014 release date is targeted.

Extra Tidbit: Anyone out there knowledgeable in the realms of science who can tell if that plot has much grounding in reality? Not that it matters much, but I'm just curious.

I love Sci-fi, its my favourite genre, but this plots sounds ludicrous. I remember a fake movie from King of Queens called Floaters, sounds like they decided to actually make it.

Ummm....

So a tiny satellite manages to invert the gravitational pull of the Earth? That makes no logical sense as it's the mass of the planet which defines the gravitational pull. The only way for this to make sense is that this satellite somehow makes it so that the mass of the planet doesn't account at all for the planet's gravitational pull.

Might be interested just for how they explain this.

Updated with a bit more of an explanation that I found after posting the article. Still don't know if it works, but there's at least a bit more to the plot than originally thought...

Actually that sounds pretty cool, dark energy or dark matter is still a big mystery so excited to see how they do it.
