The article reports on the plan of Paramount Pictures Inc. and Steven Spielberg to create a science fiction film in the U.S. Inspired by the Caltech physicist Kip S. Thorne's theory on the existence of wormholes, Spielberg hopes to direct a movie that tells about a space travel story. But the project would not possibly be the next work to be hold by the director since it will still undergo long study.
