Variety reports that Ruairi Robinson is attached to direct sci-fi film The Fallen for Lionsgate UK and Harry Brown producer Kris Thykier.
The $35 million film “is about an alien spaceship that crash lands in Russia. When it creates a 400-mile electronic dead-zone, international special ops teams are sent in to neutralize it.”
The original script was written by Andrew Will (Joseph Kosinski’s upcoming Archangel).
The Fallen is expected to shoot in early 2012.
