Just announced last week and scheduled for release in March of 2011, Apollo 18 has just replaced its director, reports Heat Vision. Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego will be stepping in to take over from the previously-announced Trevor Cawood.
The film, which will shoot immediately in a “found footage” documentary style, will pretend to unearth lost footage from Apollo 18’s undocumented and covert mission to the moon, revealing disturbing new evidence of other life forms.
Lopez-Gallego was the director of the 2007 Spanish film, King of the Hill. Apollo 18 will mark his first English-language film.
