As the article points out, much of the reason we don't know anything about this film is due to the irrational levels of paranoia sweeping Tinseltown these days to prevent even the tiniest smidgens of their property details be leaked online or to entertainment press. Scripts for movies as mundane as Battleship and Rise of the Apes are apparently no longer emailed or couriered to agents and actors, but instead kept in-house under lock and key, only viewable with a studio rep standing over one's shoulder to make sure no pictures are taken. Really...Battleship? Don't flatter yourself, Universal, please.
This isn't to say I don't understand the need to protect one's assets from IP pirates, but until there are a proliferation of websites whose sole purpose is to publish whole, completed, final draft scripts I don't think it's much of an issue. Until then, leaks and slips of the tongue about movies in pre-production have a name, Hollywood, it's called "buzz." Best learn that term.
