Alien invaders are back, Das Boot style! Instead of seeing the world destroyed by a puny virus or environmental disaster, we're going to get the full-on intergalactic world-smash, maybe for the first time since 2005's disappointing War Of The Worlds. Wolfgang Petersen will direct Uprising, about a group of human freedom fighters after a "powerful alien race" has occupied Earth. The only bad sign: Charles Leavitt (K-Pax) is writing the script.
