Earth Isn’t What We Think In An Upcoming Sci-Fi Prison Movie

I love movies that frame our planet in an unexpected way. That seems to be the idea behind Prison Earth, a film being developed by Creed producer David Winkler and Roger Mincheff, which conceives Earth as a prison that aliens use to house dangerous criminals.

The Wrap broke the news of the film, which is aiming for an on-demand release in 2018. It will also be preceded by a graphic novel in 2017 that will give some backstory to this idea.

There’s not much more info about the project but the idea itself is incredibly captivating. How does it work? Are humans just alien prisoners? Are the prisoners living among us? How did Earth get chosen? And who would be the hero in this scenario?

I guess we’ll find out in a few years. I just hope everyone involved keeps this in mind. There certainly is some Escape from New York potential here.
