Emma Booth joins Pena & Caplan for Extinction alien sci-fi thriller

What would you do if one day you woke up and the world was being invaded by aliens? Would you round up your nearest and dearest and head for the hills? Or, would you go to the closest department store and stock up on weapons and rations in an effort to ride out the oncoming storm of laser beams, anal probes, and mind melds? I honestly don't know what my reaction would be. I mean, how much would you really be able to accomplish if suddenly the ground was on fire and whole neighborhoods of people were being systematically beamed up and prepped for dissection? It's something to think about for sure, because hey, you never know, right?

Today, we've gotten world that Australian actress Emma Booth (GODS OF EGYPT, GLITCH) will be re-teaming with her HOUNDS OF LOVE director Ben Young for Universal's sci-fi alien invasion thriller EXTINCTION.
