Matt Reeves To Write/Direct Universal Thriller Based On Famed Sci-Fi Short Story

Deadline says:

EXCLUSIVE: Matt Reeves has signed on at Universal Pictures to write and direct a feature based on the famed Ray Nelson short story 8 O’Clock in the Morning. Strike Entertainment partners Eric Newman and Marc Abraham are producing.

The story is about a man who awakens one morning with the crystal-clear realization that we are surrounded daily by the presence of aliens that are controlling society. It was owned by the studio because it was used as the basis for the 1988 John Carpenter film They Live. In that film, aliens were discovered through the use of special glasses. None of that is being used here, and the film is not considered a remake.

Matt Reeves is one of my favorites now. Cloverfield and Let Me In were amazing!
