Matt Reeves, director of the slightly-better-than-you-would-think-for-what-it-is (boy I am just HEAPING on the praise) Cloverfield and Let Me In, will be writing and helming a feature based on the classic short story 8 O’clock in the Morning. Granted, this short has already been turned into a movie – John Carpenter‘s They Live borrows generously from the plot of the Ray Nelson’s story. But Reeves has a different idea, choosing to instead focus on the “emotional” and serious impact of the story whereas Carpenter took a satirical look at it. And what’s the story you ask? Oh just the basic, guy wakes up from hypnosis and can see that aliens are ruling our world. The usual.
