Doug Liman's untitled 'Moon' project is rising over Paramount -- for now. The science-fiction film -- about a renegade group of former space employees who roam the world in an effort to acquire space equipment so they can go back to the moon for a secret energy source -- was set up at DreamWorks as 'Luna' in 2007 before moving to Paramount.

Liman has quite a few projects in the works. Until recently, according to The Hollywood Reporter, he was thinking hard about the sci-fi action project 'All You Need Is Kill' at Warners, but his interest has shifted back to 'Moon.' (Other projects on his docket: 'Jumper 2,' 'The Osterman Weekend,' 'The Last of the Tribe,' 'Nick Tungsten, Nightmare Hunter' and 'Attica.' And just yesterday he expressed a desire to work on a 1920s drama set in China).

Jake Gyllenhaal was originally attached to star, but has moved on, and actors whose names have come up include Andrew Garfield, Emile Hirsch and Chris Pine. The names of Rosario Dawson, Megan Fox, Rachel McAdams, Eva Mendes, Zoe Saldana and Olivia Wilde have popped up for the female lead. Liman would like to begin filming this summer, but that would all depend on casting and a subsequent green light from Paramount.
