Sam Raimi Making Big-Budget Alien Invasion Movie

Posted: September 30th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Sam Raimi Making Big-Budget Alien Invasion MovieSubmit Comment
Sam Raimi (Spider-Man) and "District 9" producer Bill Block are in negotiations with Warner Bros to develop a big-budget movie called "EDF," which stands for Earth Defense Force and is about Earth's response to an imminent alien invasion.

The film is based on a script from "Air Force One" screenwriter Andrew Marlowe. NY magazine has already read the script, stating: "We love it. Mix 'Top Gun' with 'Independence Day' and add a pinch of 'The Last Starfighter,' and you'll get 'EDF.'"

The movie opens with a US military operation gone awry. Sent to rescue what they believe is a sub that's accidentally bumped into a mine in Chinese waters, US naval aviators quickly wind up engaged in a dogfight with a squadron of Chinese air force pilots. Soon, planes on both sides are being shot out of the sky, but not by the Chinese or US pilots by three alien attack fighters, which soon depart and destroy many of the world's landmarks and military installations, then vanish.

It's a test of Earth's defensive capabilities, and we failed. Shortly after, NASA detects a radiation signature in a nearby galaxy, indicating a far more massive attack coming in about ten months, and world leaders set about trying to create super-aircraft and weapons that can fight off the coming invasion.

It's not clear whether Raimi will direct, since he's working on "World of Warcraft" movie, "Wizard of Oz" prequel and three hour-long TV series for ABC, Fox and CBS.

Hot damn, if I had to guess what the guy who directed The Evil Dead would look like, it would be just like that picture. Dude looks like a freak. This movie sounds alright, but I'd rather see a good Ender's Game adaptation, assuming it could be done.

Sam handled the Spiderman franchise pretty well (except for 3) so I'll give this one a chance.

Alex, why are there battery ads on the side of the screen? Is this for Dustin's benefit?

Sam Raimi is a fantastic director and I'm a fan of alien films but this just sounds chessy as sh*t. Make another classic horror film, your good at that.

This could be good if done right. Kinda like what I read about for the Independance Day sequal. Where they have x amount of years ot prep for the next invasion.

Damn.. At first glance, I read it as "Sam Raimi making Big-Budget Allen Iverson Movie. I thought that Sam Raimi was falling off the deep end, but it seems that instead I am.

I'm now less excited.
