When will the "found footage" style of movie die? Possibly when films like Cloverfield and Paranormal Activity stop making tons of cash. Olatunde Osunsanmi, writer of The Fourth Kind, is writing and directing Dark Moon, a lunar "found footage" epic.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, this will be yet another movie in which a camera is discovered after the person who made the video recordings is already dead. And it takes up the idea that the Moon landings continued after Apollo 17, in secret. The film follows "a black ops post-Apollo mission sent to the moon to explore previously classified discoveries and its unintended and disturbing consequences." Akiva Goldsman will produce, and Warner Bros. is already on board to make this film — although Osunsanmi already has another film he's directing, The Commuter.
