The Little Film Company has boarded sales on thriller The Men from Re-Animator director Stuart Gordon.

Gordon and his Re-Animator producer Brian Yuzna are in pre-production on the story of a woman who discovers that earth is captive to an alien race that took control of the planet half a million years ago. The late Dan O’Bannon, whose credits include TotalRecall, wrote the screenplay.

The Little Film Company co-president Robbie Little serves as executive producer on the project which is out to casting.

“We have admired Brian and Stuart’s films for years and are very happy to be making this project with them now,” Little said. “It’s especially thrilling to be working on a project written by the great Dan O’Bannon.
