I don’t know what it is, but every time we see a new movie coming headed up by one of the stars of HBO’s “The Wire,” we get instantly excited. Sure, he’s better known for “Fringe,” but damn it, Lance Reddick will always be Lt. Daniels to us!
According to Variety, Reddick’s production company, Christai Films, has optioned rights to Stuart Gallop’s script In War They Come from U.K.-based Twinstar Prods. and will develop the Neil Corbould-directed movie as a starring vehicle for Reddick.
Budgeted at $5 million, the sci-fi/action pic tells the story of a U.S. soldier and his battle-hardened staff sergeant (Reddick) who lead a squad on a top-secret mission into the jungles of Vietnam to find a missing special forces unit, only to learn that an evil alien species may be responsible for their disappearance.
Christai and Twinstar are currently casting the other lead role, and producers intend to raise funds via Kickstarter in the coming weeks with the aim of starting production as early as summer 2013.
