Writer Sells Red Dawn With a Supernatural Angle in Invasion


An invasion is coming to Philadelphia…  Writer Brad Peyton, the scribe behind Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, has sold a pitch that sounds – essentially – like Red Dawn.  Ah, but there’s a supernatural twist here, of course, and it’s Cloverfield-esque in nature, says Variety.

The proposed project is called Invasion and it tells of a group of Philadelphia students who are forced to become soldiers when their city is attacked by a supernatural force.  Reel FX bought the pitch.

Peyton previous tackled Cats and Dogs 2 and is locked to helm a third Journey film.
