With British directing talent like Duncan Jones (Source Code) and Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) crossing the pond to take on big sci-fi films in Hollywood, it seems like we're experiencing yet another British invasion, this time in the cinema world. Now another director from the United Kingdom is making the leap as Empire reports A Lonely Place to Die director Julian Gilbey is set to helm Offworld, an original sci-fi film with a whole slew of dangerous creatures on an alien planet. Gibney says, "It's a kind of an intergalactic Naked Prey, a pedal-to-the-metal safari movie set on an alien planet." Read on!

However, rather than following in the footsteps of films like Alien, Gilbey says, "There's lots of nasty creatures - some even on the good guys' side." So rather than having our protagonists partaking in another battle of humans against aliens, it appears that some of the extra-terrestrials will be fighting some of the other more dangerous aliens on the planet. Lloyd Levin, the producer of films like Watchmen, Hellboy and United 93 is behind this promising new sci-fi that could give us yet another fine director to keep the genre thriving and strong.
