Pierre Morel Will Probably Direct Sam Raimi’s EDF

Apparently Universal wasn’t very taken with Pierre Morel’s idea for their upcoming “Quija” movie (get it? ahem), because the studio has passed on Morel’s take. Instead, Morel will now concentrate on directing “EDF” aka “Earth Defense Force” for producer Sam Raimi and Warner Bros.

“EDF” is set after three alien fighters attack the planet, leaving countries humiliated. The governments of Earth then race to create a space fighting force in preparation for a second attack by an approaching alien horde.
