Invasion – Alien invasion film could be the next Cloverfield?
Posted by LiveFor on December 1, 2009
Summit Entertainment has picked up Ben Magid’s Cloverfield-esque sci-fi spec script Invasion according to STYD.
The story follows the survivors of a subway accident under Los Angeles. Climbing out the tunnels, they emerge into a ruined city littered in some kind of snow, bodies, panic-fueled mobs and a strange goo with acidic properties.
Sounds good doesn’t it. I wonder if the snow are the remains of humanity in a “They’re all dead, Dave” Red Dwarf kind of way? The description also reminds me a little of one scene in FAQ About Time Travel.
Eli Roth and Eric Newman will produce.
It has some potential although I’m assuming when they say Cloverfield-esque that they don’t mean people running around with camcorders during an invasion? That shaky-cam really makes me feel sick.
