Sony declined to comment, but sources said the film is shaping up for an early 2020 production start, and that the script is an ensemble with a big male lead. Script is being written by Ehren Kruger. Plot is being kept under wraps, but it’s big Michael Bay movie, with a gritty sci-fi element to it.
Bay and Stoff previously collaborated on 13 Hours, the Paramount movie about the siege of Benghazi.
Bay most recently wrapped 6 Underground, the big-budget ensemble actioner for Netflix that stars Ryan Reynolds.
Bay is repped by WME.
