Captain America Director Finds Himself at The Brink of ExtinctionAliens. They just won’t leave us alone, man. Every time we turn around, they’re either invading, probing, mimicking, or even just collecting all of our Reese’s Pieces for mass consumption. Friggin’ pests. Good thing for us we have the dude who directed Captain America in our corner!

According to THR, Joe Johnston, who directed 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger as well as cult comic book movie The Rocketeer, is in negotiations to direct Extinction, a sci-fi feature project set up at Good Universe.

David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman of Mandeville are producing Extinction, which was written by Spenser Cohen.

Plot details are being kept under wraps, but it does involve a man trying to save his family with an alien invasion figuring into the proceedings.

Good Universe picked up the project in late summer 2013.

    Jurassic Park 3 is not a bad film, but The Lost World ( a pretty decent film in my book) is much better.

    JP 3 is better than 2?! You guys are nuts!

      Agreed? On what planet is 3 better than 2?

      Talking raptors. Inferior CGI. Cheap cinematography. No climax.
      It felt like a SyFy Channel movie.

        We’re talking about the same movie, right? The one where Goldblum has a kid that outsmarts a raptor with a fucking acrobatic routine? Julianne Moore makes a big deal about not interacting with the dinosaurs only to molest one minutes later? Or how about the T Rex that broke out of the ship’s hold, ate the crew and then went back into the hold and closed the door behind him? There’s no WAY he could have done that with those tiny arms.

        3 may have been silly, but it wasn’t as forehead-slappingly stupid as The Lost World.

          I can look past those flaws more than I can William H. Macy and Tea Leoni. They drove me fucking crazy when I went to see JP3 in the theater. Without a doubt the two most annoying characters in the series.

          • frank_dracman

            LOL really? Leoni is annoying but I have no problem with Macy. The kid in 2 was the worst. Why was she even there? Because we needed a child in peril. It’s been a really long time since I’ve read the book, but I’m pretty sure there was no children.

    After the insanely stupid second film, I remember going into JP3 with great hesitation. Turns out it was pretty good. Simple story, I love Sam Neil (no homo) and the Pterodactyls were neat. I wouldn’t call it highly underrated as it still had it’s problems, but it’s leagues better than 2.

    Sounds pretty cool. I like Joe Johnston as a director. Interestingly, the highly underrated Jurassic Park III – which he also directed – originaly had the subtitle “Extinction”.
