Michael B. Jordan and Elizabeth Raposo’s Outlier Society will develop the Amazon MGM Studios action thriller movie, "T-Minus", which hails from Fall Guy‘s Drew Pearce and Watchmen and Station Eleven scribe Nick Cuse.

The duo is producing with Pearce who produces via his Point of No Return Films and Isa Dick Hackett via Electric Shepherd Productions. 

The project was initially developed by Pearce’s banner Point of No Return Films. Outlier Society’s Elizabeth Raposo heard the pitch—said to be an action-thriller along the lines of “Top Gun" meeting Back to the Future, with a Philip K. Dick twist —and saw the potential for it to be the perfect Outlier project: an elevated piece with major tentpole potential.

While plot details are being kept under wraps, "T-Minus" will be adapted from the Philip K. Dick sci-fi 1974 short story "A Little Something for Us Tempunauts".

The story follows tempunauts aka time travelers from the U.S. are sent a few days into the future rather than a century as planned. They learn their return from the future is fatal to them and are also trapped in a closed time loop, leaving the group deliberating whether to break out of it.

Sarah Scougal and Kalen Egan at Electric Shepherd will also produce. Christina Raquel will help oversee for Outlier Society. Ian Fisher will executive produce for Point of No Return Films, with Christopher Tricarico executive producing for Electric Shepherd.

Outlier Society and Electric Shepherd both have first-look deals at Amazon MGM Studios.
