Kidman Earns a Hefty Payday for WB's "Invasion"
The screenplay by David Kajganich deals with "an insidious and behavior-changing epidemic that decimates the human race. Kidman ... will play a D.C. psychiatrist who figures out that extraterrestrials are behind the invasion. She battles to protect her son, who may hold the key to stopping the takeover."
Uber-producer Joel Silver will be overseeing the project. The young German filmmaker, who recently scored some arthouse accolades with "Downfall" will be making his English-language debut on "Invasion," and the director seems pretty excited about the project: "This was exactly the kind of studio movie I wanted to do. I'm a specialist in human drama and three-dimensional characters, and I want to emphasize that over big special effects and CGI."
