Rawson Marshall Thurber, whose credits include “We’re the Millers” and “Dodgeball,” is attached to direct.
“Dust” is set in an alternate-history universe in which World War II had a different ending. Instead, the Axis powers attempted to dominate the world with weapons built using alien technology taken from a crashed spaceship.
Thurber is directing “Central Intelligence,” starring Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, with shooting in Boston this summer. Lin is a producer on the three upcoming “Lego” movies.
Erik Feig, Jim Miller and James Myers are overseeing the project for Lionsgate.
