Joe Johnston, who directed 2011's CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER and JURASSIC PARK 3, is in negotiations to direct EXTINCTION, a sci-fi feature project set up at Good Universe that we first told you about in September of last year, according to THR.
David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman of Mandeville are producing EXTINCTION, which was written by Spenser Cohen. Plot details are being kept under wraps but it does involve 'a man trying to save his family with an alien invasion figuring into the proceedings'. The project was earlier described as a thriller with science fiction elements with comparisons to CLOVERFIELD and THE SIXTH SENSE being suggested.
Johnston last directed NOT SAFE FOR WORK, a Blumhouse low-budget thriller that stars Max Minghella and is awaiting a release.
