Soon after the box office success and critical acclaim of THE SOCIAL NETWORK, that movie's producers decided to collaborate on another project.

That project is SEX ON THE MOON, a partly true moon-rock heist romance (??) based on an upcoming book from author Ben Mezrich, whose book "The Accidental Billionaires" was the basis for the Facebook movie, and whose "Bringing Down the House" became the movie 21.

SOCIAL producers Scott Rudin, Michael De Luca, Kevin Spacey and Dana Brunetti are gathering again for the Sony project. And they already found a director in Will Gluck, who brought us EASY A, the Emma Stone high school variant of "The Scarlet Letter".

The book synopsis: Thad Roberts, a fellow in a prestigious NASA program had an idea—a romantic, albeit crazy, idea. He wanted to give his girlfriend the moon. Literally.

Thad convinced his girlfriend and another female accomplice, both NASA interns, to break into an impregnable laboratory at NASA—past security checkpoints, an electronically locked door with cipher security codes, and camera-lined hallways—and help him steal the most precious objects in the world: the moon rocks.

But what does one do with an item so valuable that it’s illegal even to own? And was Thad Roberts—undeniably gifted, picked for one of the most competitive scientific posts imaginable, a possible astronaut—really what he seemed?

Extra Tidbit: Gluck's EASY A follow-up comedy FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS, starring Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis, opens in July.

Definitely sounds like an appealing story. Will be interesting to see what Will Gluck decides to do with it.

Could be good. Loved Easy A - mostly for Emma Stone, but it was a well made film too I thought
