Hostel director Eli Roth on board for Invasion

Summit Entertainment has purchased the rights to Ben Magid’s spec script for thriller Invasion.

Likened to Cloverfield, the film reportedly opens with a subway accident in Los Angeles. The survivors climb from the wreckage to find the “snowy” city in ruins. They encounter dead bodies, people in a state of panic and acidic “goo”.

Hostel director Eli Roth and Eric Newman are on board to shepherd the project.
