Fede Álvarez is attached to direct Lionsgate’s upcoming movie, 16 States.
THR reports that the script, which was penned last year, is very timely with its’ subject matter.
The script concentrates on “a pandemic, this time with zombies, with a story of a mother trying to reach her family at the center of it.”
The site reports that the script is reminiscent of Will Smith‘s I Am Legend.
Fede, along with writers John Requa and Glenn Ficarra, and Charlie Gogolak, Roy Lee, Miri Yoon, Shintaro Shimosawa and Rodolfo Sayagues will also produce the film.
