Bill Block Will Produce ALIEN SLEEPER CELL
Bill Block, the producer of the film District 9 is partnering with Adrian Askarieh’s Prime Universe Prod. for another alien flick – ALIEN SLEEPER CELL.
While details of the plot aren’t available yet, Cell’s story was first pitched by Felipe Linz and Morgan Davis Foehl will write the screenplay. When they have a script in hand, Block’s QED International and Prime Universe will look for independent financers, or possibly partner with a major studio for funding.
The one detail that we do know about Cell is the alien invasion film will take on a fresh look to the invasion genre, and will attempt to work in the tension that we saw in The Bourne Identity franchise. The concept sounds interested enough.
Producers for Cell will be Block, Askarieh (who rose the funds for script development), Linz, Paul Hanson, and Prolific Entertainment’s Will Rowbotham. Stepping in as executive producers are Fran Durekas and Vincent Bruzzese.
