RKO Teams With Lincoln for Anti-Alien Invasion Flick ‘Nye Incidents’

Announced almost exactly two years ago (The Nye Incidents, a comic co-created by Communion author Whitley Strieber, is finally heading to the big screen, so says THR.

Previously announced director Todd Lincoln (The Apparition) and producer Daniel Alter have taken the film from Warner Bros. and now with RKO are teaming up to adapt Nye, a Devils Due comic written by Strieber and Craig Spector and set in the world of alien abductees.

It’s a world well-known to Strieber, the author of horror novels The Hunger and The Wolfen who then wrote about his own experience being abducted by extra-terrestrials in Communion.

‘Nye’ centers on a seen-it-all and logical medical examiner whose faith in the rational is shattered when she runs afoul a brutal murder of a supposed alien abductee. The case puts her on the path chasing a serial killer working in the alien abductee community who may or may not be human.

The goal is to make, in a way, an anti-alien invasion movie, something that doesn’t veer into conspiracy/X-Files territory yet remains spooky and terrifying.
