History has put in development Blue Book, an alien-themed drama from A+E Studios and Robert Zemeckis’ ImageMovers.

Created and written on spec by David O’Leary, Blue Book is a story about the real-life, U.S. Air Force-sponsored investigations into UFO-related phenomena from 1947-70.

ImageMovers partners Zemeckis and Jack Rapke executive produce alongside the company’s Jackie Levine. Zemeckis has experience in the arena, having directed the 1997 Jodie Foster movie Contact.

O’Leary’s sci-fi script Missing Time recently was optioned by film financier Amasia Entertainment (Mr. Right, The Call). He’s repped by Paradigm and Zero Gravity Management.

ImageMovers also has The Ark, a high-concept drama take on the Noah’s Ark tale in development at NBC, and produced the upcoming Brad Pitt-Marion Cottilard starrer Allied, set for a November release.
