Fox is nearing a deal to make Dan Casey's one-off comic Theory Of Everything into a wild science thriller. The main character is a disgraced scientist who is desperately trying to save his (formerly presumed dead) wife from a parallel dimension. How? With science!


Deadline is reporting that 20th Century Fox is nearing a deal with American Beauty producer Dan Jinks, along with Dan Casey and Nick Nantell, the brains behind this original pitch. Sounds like Fringe for the big screen.

So it's really a story about someone so obsessed another person that they refuse to move on and find someone else? Frankly, I'm kinda tired of character premises like that. I don't find obsessives very sympathetic. Or, I would like it better if it was a story of growth and progression where the scientist matures and learns to let go and move on. Or, maybe give the character a more believable motivation, like save his or her own world from destruction—that's not obsession, that's just self defense and preservation.
