Fox Atomic, the down and out 20th Century Fox genre banner, is still kicking according to Bloody Disgusting. In a story published earlier today, it seems that the once burgeoning Fox Atomic is actually going ahead with a purposed Alien Infection thriller.

At this time, the film is untitled. The plot will be based on articles, DVDs, and other assorted media that hypothesize a worldwide viral outbreak caused by an American spacecraft that returns from Mars with infected rock and soil samples. Bloody Disgusting has described the film as Outbreak meets 28 Days Later.

At this time, the film does not have an official start date.
