Mick Garris is switching gears for his latest film and is trading in Stephen King for a group of aliens hellbent on invading our world. Personally, we’d keep King if only for his unique ability to come up with the most left field endings for his books anyone could ever imagine.
THR reports that Garris is now making his first foray into science fiction with Invasion.
“It’s a bit of different direction for me,” says Garris, “but it’s great because I get to make a period movie but with a modern sensibility.”
Garris described Invasion as “The Outer Limits” meets “Mad Men”, a time of “men in ties and hats and when you thought you could trust the government.” Yep, those days are clearly over.
The script, by A.J. Ferrara, centers on a woman reporter trying to show a male-centric newsroom that she is more than just “boobs and a skirt,” in Garris’ words. In trying to step out of the style pages she’s been relegated to, she uncover the truth behind an alien invasion.
