Development Pitch

You've heard of aliens overtaking planet earth before, but not quite like this. Four teens have the perfect DNA to match four parallel planet aliens from NINE, so why is that important? Well--in order for said-aliens to live on Earth for an extended period of time, they need a soul. Nobody on NINE needs one, but their planet is imploding. I guess that's what happens when you conspire with earth's greedy government to allow a few aliens to swipe some souls and live on earth. Did I say a few aliens? Eliminate disease, overpopulation, develop the perfect solution. The death chip. Sometimes the solution can be more terrifying than the problem. So, here's the deal...you earthlings let us test our alien death chip on your newborns, and we'll give you enough raw gold to solve all your financial woes. Everyone wins. Peace and Harmony for both planets. WRONG. They're ALIENS, folks. Yeah, I know they look, act, and sound like us, but they're not us. That's okay...we'll get their gold then make them leave. Right. Haven't you been paying attention to most science fiction movies? Thank goodness Faith and her friends aren't drinking the Kool-Aid.
