www.scifi.com/sfw/cu… Sony Ponies Up For The Grays Sony Pictures will pay screenwriter Ken Nolan (Black Hawk Down) $3 million for his 75-page “script-ment” (less than a script, but more than a treatment) of Whitley Strieber’s as-yet-unpublished alien SF novel The Grays, one of the studio’s largest payments for a treatment, Variety reported. The Grays concerns an alien race that essentially functions as the “United States of the cosmos,” running things on Earth as well as on other worlds. Operating in secrecy, the aliens are unwilling to reveal themselves for fear of altering mankind’s development, the trade paper reported. It’s not clear who’ll star in The Grays, but insiders say the lead role is intended for a woman, the trade paper reported. An ex-advertising executive, Strieber began his career as a novelist with the horror titles The Hunger and Wolfen, both of which were turned into feature films. More recently, Strieber co-authored with Art Bell a book about doomsday climate change, The Coming Global Super Storm, which served as the inspiration for Fox’s The Day After Tomorrow. Strieber also authored a novelization of that film. He first gained national notoriety for his 1987 book Communion, about his alleged abduction by aliens. — No virus found in this outgoing message.
