The 20th Century Fox has appointed Thor Freudenthal to direct its adventure project "They Came from Upstairs" with an eye to start production in May.

Bringing "They Came from Upstairs" one notch higher in development, the 20th Century Fox has finally got a director on board to helm the project in Thor Freudenthal, Variety has revealed.

The trade says that Freudenthal was picked up after producer Barry Josephson watched his commercials reel and was struck by the tone and humor presented in the work. Freudenthal, who previously served as the second unit director in 2003's "The Haunted Mansion", currently is also attached to write as well as to direct "C.E.O." and "Dead Ever After", the latter being produced by Luc Besson for Europa Corp.

Set to enter production in May, "Upstairs" concerns a group of kids who have to defend their vacation home in Maine from aliens who have invaded from upstairs. British scribe Mark Burton, known for his writing work in "Madagascar", has already been hired to pen the screenplay.
