Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Developing Alien Invasion Thriller ‘The Fall’

Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Partners is developing alien-invasion thriller “The Fall,” based on a script by Australian writer Pete Bridges.

Madhouse Entertainment partner Adam Kolbrenner will produce with Madhouse’s Robyn Meisinger executive producing. Amblin closed the deal for the script this week.

The story is set amid an alien invasion and centers on a divorced couple who must travel on foot from downtown Atlanta to the suburbs, where their young children are home alone. No director or actors are on board yet.

Spielberg explored similar themes in 2005 sci-fier “War of the Worlds,” a contemporized version of the H.G. Wells novel. The film starred Tom Cruise and Dakota Fanning, produced by his Amblin Entertainment and Cruise/Wagner, grossed nearly $600 million worldwide.

Kolbrenner was a producer on the 2013 thriller “Prisoners,” starring Jake Gylenhaal and Hugh Jackman.

Bridges’ adventure-survival  script “Resurface,” set at the bottom of the Mariana Trench, made the Black List and has been set up with Todd Garner’s Broken Road. Bridges is repped by Verve, Madhouse and attorney Kim Stenton.

The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
