Director Brad Peyton has found his next journey. Cary Granat’s Reel FX has acquired the pitch from Peyton for “Invasion.”
Peyton will produce and direct “Invasion.” The script is written by J. Daniel Shaffer. The project will also be produced by Andrew Adamson under the Strange Weather Films banner.
The plot is about unarmed students in Philadelphia who must battle an attack from a supernatural force.
Variety had described “Invasion” to be in the vein of “Cloverfield.”
Peyton had directed the upcoming “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island,” which starred Josh Hutcherson, Dwayne Johnson, Vanessa Hudgens and Michael Caine. He also directed 2010’s “Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore.”
“Journey 2” will be in theaters on February 10.
