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.
