Since Paramount Pictures decided to develop "Area 51", an adaptation of video game with the same title, the filmmakers have tried to keep the details under wraps. Recently, Latino Review obtained a copy of some pages of director Oren Peli's short script.
[SPOILER ALERT!] The film begins with a guy, named Chris, testing out his brand new handycam. He has an interest in extra terrestrials subjects, while his friends, Paul and Rob, are skeptical. The next day, the three travel to Vegas where they hope to get video evidence that aliens exist.
Chris has arranged a meeting with a former Area 51 employee named Novak who, while working there, heard rumblings of government cooperation on human/alien experiments in exchange for alien technology. Novak knows the security measures of the compound inside and out, but never got any proof of the extraterrestrial rumors. Later, the gang discovers more about the military base's impenetrable system of motion detectors, thermal imaging, ammonia detectors, armed guards, as well as "ray guns."
In October, it has been confirmed that the man behind successful indie film "Paranormal Activity", Oren Peli, started working on the action thriller movie project. Grant Morrison writes the script, while Dean Georgaris teams up with Michael Aguilar, Stan Winston and Christine Peters to produce the movie. However, Paramount Pictures has yet to announce the release schedule for the film.
