Summit Entertainment has acquired the spec script “Invasion,” which could be a possible project for director Eli Roth (“Hostel), reports ShockTillYouDrop.

According to ShockTillYouDrop: Summit Entertainment has acquired Ben Magid's script “Invasion.” Although plot details are being kept under wraps at this time, the film "opens with a wicked subway accident in Los Angeles in which the survivors (the film's protagonists) climb from the wreckage to find the now "snowy" city in ruins. What they encounter topside are bodies, mobs of people in a state of panic and acidic "goo."

“Invasion” is being described as ‘Cloverfield’-esque. Roth and Summit’s Eric Newman are producing the film according to TrackingB.com.

Roth is also rumored to be involved with a project called “Endangered Species," which also is about aliens. Magid was one of the writers who wrote a draft of Rogue's adaptation of “Hack/Slash.”

At this time, it isn’t clear if Roth will direct the film or maybe act in it after his turn in “Inglourious Basterds,” but having him involved automatically makes it buzzworthy. He is attached to a few upcoming projects including “Cotton,” and “Man With the Iron Fist."

Look for “Invasion” sometime in 2011.
