Warner Bros. has been trying to make a Space Invaders movie for almost ten years. We first wrote about the project back in 2010, when producer Jason Blum was one of a few people in talks to make it happen.

I’m sure you sit around once or twice a week and muse on a very important question: where is Mark Steven Johnson? The Ghost Rider writer/director half disappeared in the past few years, surfacing only with the forgettable Kristen Bell romcom When in Rome in 2010.
But now he’s got a new project, and not one that brings him back to his Grumpy Old Men and Simon Birch roots. Autobahn is the name of this one, and the film, written by Greg Russo and formerly called I-95, sounds like some combination of Speed and Taken. More info awaits below. Read More »
