Here we go! Variety‘s Dave NcNary reports that MGM has purchased a spec script called Bobism by TV writer Ben Wexler. The plot involves “a shy collegian who discovers that life in 1,000 years will be based on his blog.”

The Hollywood Reporter‘s Borys Kit adds a few more plot details: “He also finds out that aliens from the future want to kill him and prevent that utopia from happening.” Kit quotes producer Tripp Vinson, who says, “Ben Wexler found a way to cleverly combine comedy, action and sci-fi genres and play them real.”

Another producer on the project, Beau Flynn offers this high-high-concept pitch: “If ‘Midnight Run’ and ‘Terminator’ got married and birthed a ‘Superbad’ child, this would be that movie.”
