The producing team behind The Social Network will reunite to turn Ben Mezrich's book Sex On The Moon: The Amazing Story Behind The Most Audacious Heist In History into a movie.

Scott Rudin, Michael De Luca, Dana Brunetti and Kevin Spacey have picked up the screen rights to produce the unpublished non-fiction book, which centres on NASA scientist Thad Roberts as he concocts a plan to steal pieces of the moon and sell them off to impress his girlfriend.

The proposal for Mezrich's book The Accidental Billionaires was used as the basis for David Fincher and Aaron Sorkin's recent Facebook movie.

Sex On The Moon will be Mezrich's third book to make it to the big screen following 2008's card-counting drama 21 and The Social Network.
