Effects wizards Colin and Greg Strause have commenced principal photography on the sci-fi thriller Skyline, which IM Global is pre-selling at the EFM.

CAA is handling North American rights on the story of a group of part-goers who wake up to discover a mysterious bright light outside.

When they investigate the source of the light they start to realise the true scale of the terror that awaits them.

Scottie Thompson stars alongside male leads Eric Balfour and Donald Faison.

The Santa Monica-based Strause brothers previously directed AVPR Aliens Vs Predators – Requiem and worked on the effects on Avatar and 2012.
