In an announcement that IM Global has come aboard to sell Skyline, a new thriller from special FX wizards Colin and Greg Strause that has officially begun production, they reveal that Scottie Thompson (Star Trek, “Bones”) and Donald Faison (“Scrubs”, Clueless) have been cast alongside Kate Mara, Eric Balfour, Laz Alonso and Crystal Reed. While details are slim, we got the skinny: After a late night party, a group of friends are awoken in the dead of the night by an eerie light beaming through the window. Like moths to a flame, the light source is drawing people outside before they suddenly vanish into the air. They soon discover an otherwordly force is swallowing the entire human population off the face of the earth. Now our band of survivors must fight for their lives as the world unravels around them. The Santa Monica-based Strause brothers previously directed Aliens Vs Predators: Requiem and worked on the effects on Avatar and 2012.
