"Taken" Director Signs On for "Earth Defense Force" Alien Invasion Film

Posted: November 16th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Taken" Director Signs On for "Earth Defense Force" Alien Invasion FilmSubmit Comment
"Taken" director Pierre Morel has been looking for his next project and was hoping that it would be "Ouija," the big screen adaptation of the Hasbro board game. He was in talks to helm, but when he made his pitch on Thursday, Universal Pictures passed.

As a result, Morel has signed on to direct "EDF," which stands for Earth Defense Force, which is a giant alien invasion movie that is being produced by Sam Raimi and Warner Bros.

"EDF" is set after three alien fighters attack the planet, leaving countries humiliated. The governments of Earth then race to create a space fighting force in preparation for a second attack by an approaching alien horde.

It's cool that massive invasions are back again, as long as it won't become new gay hot topic like vampires.

like in this case :

Wow, so two movies already stealing the ID4 plot isn't enough huh? We really need one more with the same basic plot?

PASS.

Looks like they took the picture right after he got the news.


I do wonder what the pitch was though for universal to pass as his other films are good in my book.

Just hurry up and make Taken 2, already.

A pissed off, enraged Liam Neeson = Win.

We need to get Mel Gibson in Taken 2 as well. Have him be a backup partner who helps Neeson a few times or something, lol. :)

yeah, Earth Defense Force is a series of video games, sh*tty ones at that (an old SNES one and a X360 one). I'm so glad it gets a film adaptation.

What do you guys want really? Nothings Original. ID4 didn't invent alien invasion movies or stories, god knows how far you'd have to go back for that. Think about War of the Worlds and The Day the Earth Stood Still.

I really want to see Battle: Los Angeles, so if they do a good job it could be entertaining.

Hollywood has always operated on trends, vampires, zombies, war films, aliens, apocalyptic. Hopefully this one will produce a few classics.

Whatever you do, don't hire the Strauss Bros. ... unless you like to enact lawsuits.
