Deadline announces the arrival of a new project on alien investments, a very hackneyed genre with which the director of ‘Beast’, Michael Pearce will have the challenge of doing something new. Co-written by Pearce and Joe Barton (‘The Ritual’), according to the medium the film will feature Riz Ahmed (‘Nightcrawler’) and Octavia Spencer (‘Ma’s basement’).
The story follows two young brothers fleeing with their father, a decorated marine (Ahmed) who is trying to protect them from an alien threat. As the journey takes them to increasingly dangerous and unexpected places, children will have to face harsh reality and leave their childhood behind. Spencer plays a probation officer who tries to help the father return home.
Amazon Studios has acquired worldwide rights to this film that will presumably (as long as the pandemic allows it) begin filming later this year in the United States.
