Ruairi Robinson To Helm “The Fallen”

Title sequence designer turned short film writer/director Ruairi Robinson is set to direct the $35 million high-concept sci-fi feature “The Fallen” for Lionsgate UK and PeaPie Films reports Variety.

The story deals with an alien spaceship that crash lands in Russia and creates a 400-mile electronic dead-zone around it. International special ops teams are soon sent in to neutralize it.

Andrew Will (“Archangel”) penned the script while Kris Thykier (“Harry Brown”) will produce. Shooting aims to begin early next year.
