Mike Colter, best known as the star of Netflix’s “Luke Cage” series, is set to join Michael Pena and Lizzy Caplan in Universal’s sci-fi thriller “Extinction.”
It’s unknown what character Colter will play in the film, which follows a man (Pena) trying to save his family from an alien invasion.
Ben Young will direct. Eric Heisserer — who was most recently nominated for an Oscar for his script on “Arrival” — will write the screenplay with Spenser Cohen and Bradley Caleb Kane.
