SHARE SPIELBERG AND 2 OTHERS TEAM UP FOR `DEEP IMPACT’

"Deep Impact" will be just that with heavyweight producers Steven Spielberg, David Brown and Richard Zanuck pooling their talent for the Paramount Pictures project.

Inspired by the classic "When Worlds Collide" and based on Arthur C. Clark's new book "The Hammer of God," the sci-fi thriller involves the discovery of a comet hurtling toward a catastrophic collision with Earth.Public fascination with the recent comet explosions on Jupiter convinced the filmmakers to go ahead with a script, which is now being written by Bruce Joel Rubin. Production is scheduled to begin next year.
