Sony And DJ Caruso Want Us All To Suffer From ‘Invertigo’

Sony is in talks with director D.J. Caruso (Disturbia, Eagle Eye) to helm Invertigo. The film is being described as a drama and was penned by Transformers: Dark of the Moon writer Ehren Kruger and Bradley Camp.

In the film a NASA satellite falls out of orbit and crashes in NYC. This creates a “reverse-G vortex”, which reverses gravity. This puts the planet in imminent danger, unless the rescue mission is successful.
Can I start laughing now?
This reminds me of an episode of the Kevin James sitcom The King of Queens. In the ep they all went to see a movie called Floaters, which had more or less the same plot. In the faux film Earth’s gravity reverses causing people to float up into the sky. I don’t want to spoil anything, but they solved the problem by putting a giant dome around the Earth.
Is this what it’s come to, people? Hollywood is now borrowing plots from fake movies in sitcoms?
What’s next? Seinfeld‘s Rochelle, Rochelle?
