Hounds of Love director Ben Young will direct Universal and Good Universe’s sci-fi thriller, which follows a father (Pena) whose recurring nightmare of losing his family becomes a real threat as the planet is invaded by aliens.

Eric Heisserer — who was most recently Oscar nominated for his Arrival script — will write the screenplay with Spenser Cohen and Bradley Caleb Kane.

Todd Lieberman and David Hoberman of Mandeville, who backed the highly-anticipated live action Beauty and the Beast, will produce. Mandeville’s Alexander Young will executive produce alongside Nathan Kahane and Joe Drake of Good Universe. Anna Halberg will serve as co-producer.

Exec VP of production Erik Baiers and creative executive Mika Pryce will oversee production for Universal. Erin Westerman will oversee on behalf of Good Universe.
