Super Secret Sci-Fi: Warner Bros. would be happy to tell you about their new super secret sci-fi project, but then they’d have to kill you. All that’s known about the studio's project is that it’s entitled The Wind, it’s set in a “space colony,” and David Koepp (War of the Worlds, Men in Black 3) wrote and will produce his own original script. Commercials director Nic Mathieu will make his feature debut. Koepp has a strong bent toward science fiction, so we could be in for a treat. [The Hollywood Reporter]

Military Denial: Reports this week claimed that President Obama’s administration arranged access for director Kathryn Bigelow and writer Mark Boal as they researched their film about killing Osama Bin Laden, provisionally titled Zero Dark Thirty. But the U.S. Admiral in charge of the operation now denies that he or his staff provided assistance to the filmmakers. [Reuters]

Use Your Imagination: The upcoming horror flick The Apparition suggests that it’s possible to create a supernatural being with the power of your mind. If in doubt, check the creepy trailer out; the movie, starring Ashley Greene, releases on August 24. [Deadline]
