New Line Cinema is moving quickly on the found-footage tornado thriller Category 6, hiring Avatar Second Unit Director Steven Quale to stand at the helm.

The movie, which is said to be in the same vein as Cloverfield, follows a group of high schoolers who capture the devastating effects of a tornado on their various mobile devices.

Steven Quale made his directorial debut with Final Destination 5, which won raves from fans and genre critics alike. It is assumed that, like Avatar and Final Destination 5, Category 6 will be shot (not converted; Steven Quale doesn't do conversion...Unless its Titanic) in 3D.

Casting on this project is currently under way. (Is it to much to ask for a Jami Gertz cameo?)
