Set simultaneously during the worldwide alien invasion of the previous Skyline film, Mark, a tough-as-nails detective, embarks on a relentless pursuit to free his son, Trent, from a nightmarish warship. After the they battle their way out, they end up in Indonesia, teaming up with the local resistance who have their own unique way of fighting the intruders. After writing the initial Skyline film, O’Donnell helms the 2nd installment an action-packed us vs. them fightfest that actually doesn’t require even having seen the first film to be completely enraptured.
Liam O’Donnell wrote and produced SKYLINE (directed by The Brothers Strause) as well as doing visual effects on Iron Man 2, and Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem. For a little PolySciFi, he is the nephew of MSNBC political commentator and West Wing writer/producer Lawrence O’Donnell.
