Eli Roth boards Invasion December 2, 2009 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.
