Eli Roth, Newman, Summit Plan An Invasion
Posted by GoreMaster Special Effects on December 1, 2009
Summit Entertainment has acquired Invasion, a spec script by Ben Magid.
Plot details are being kept under wraps at this time, however, we know the film opens with a wicked subway accident in Los Angeles in which the survivors (the film’s protagonists) climb from the wreckage to find the, now “snowy,” city in ruins. What they encounter topside is bodies, mobs of people in a state of panic and acidic “goo.”
The project is being described as Cloverfield-esque.
Eli Roth and Eric Newman (producing partners on the upcoming Cotton) will shepherd the project, says TrackingB.com. Interesting that Roth is getting behind it as he has his own Endangered Species flick in the works, another reportedly “alien”-themed film.
Magid was one of the writers who took a crack at Rogue’s Hack/Slash.
