UPDATE: ‘Invasion’ Loses its Body Snatchers, Gains Cast

Daniel Craig (Layer Cake, The Jacket) has boarded Warner Bros. Pictures’ now retitled Invasion, which is being directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Joel Silver is producing the Nicole Kidman sci-fi thriller. Originally planned to be a remake of the classic Invasion of the Body Snatchers, the film begins after a mysterious epidemic alters the behavior of human beings, a Washington psychiatrist (Kidman) discovers that its origins are extraterrestrial. She must fight to protect her son, who might hold the key to stopping the invasion. Craig plays Kidman’s colleague and love interest who teams up with her to fight the invasion. Invasion was originally viewed as a remake of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, but David Kajganich’s script was different enough that the studio now views it as an original.
