Joe Johnston (“Captain America: The First Avenger,” “Jurassic Park III”) is in negotiations to direct the sci-fi tale “Extinction” at Good Universe and Mandeville.
Spenser Cohen penned the script about a man trying to save his family with an alien invasion. David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman are producing.
Speaking of directors, D.J. Caruso has signed on to helm the supernatural thriller “Selling Time” at 20th Century Fox. Dan McDermott, John Davis and Jennifer Klein will produce.
Caruso will also oversee a new draft by McDermott that will turn the project into a potential Will Smith star vehicle (Smith has not committed as yet).
