An Alien Invasion Flick From the Director of "Wanted"? Yes, Please

Sure, there are tons of "take me to your leader" movies on the horizon, but the news that the hyper-stylish Timur Bekmambetov is saddling up to produce The Darkest Hour is good indeed.

An Alien Invasion Flick From the Director of "Wanted"? Yes, Please

Hollywood is overflowing with alien-invasion movies in development, but The Darkest Hour sounds particularly intriguing. Nightwatch and Wanted director Timur Bekmambetov will produce it in his native Russia, where the filmmakers can use his Moscow studio, and Chris Gorak — who last made 2006 frighteningly amazing dirty-bomb thriller, Right At Your Door (pictured above) — will direct. Juno's Olivia Thirlby will play a little-miss-rich-bitch who teams with a band of survivors to repel the alien threat.
