Invasion of the Body Snatchers Cancelled? Invasion Begins!Goon
This is very good news to hear. Apparently when writer David Kajganich turned in his script they decided that they had something really fresh in their hands and are making an entirely different and "original" film of their own called "Invasion". At least we won't have another remake coming our way.
As we reported earlier Nicole Kidman is still in talks to appear in the film in which a mysterious epidemic alters the behavior of human beings and follows a Washington psychiatrist (Kidman) who discovers that its origins are extraterrestrial. She must fight to protect her son, who may hold the key to stopping the invasion.
Joel Silver is quoted in the Hollywood Reporter saying, "It's a very insidious story about how the end of the world can come through science and disease and not through explosions," Silver said. "Oliver really understands the kind of dark character study that this is going to be. He fell in love with Nicole, he said he really wanted her, and it took us a while to make the deal."
"Invasion" is being directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel with Joel Silver producing. They plan to begin shooting in Baltimore sometime during September.
