Roland Emmerich has reportedly begun work on a secret project that will use a similar shooting style to Cloverfield.

The Independence Day director will use only a minimal budget of $5 million on The Zone, according to The Hollywood Reporter, in a stark contrast to his normal big-budget films.

Few plot details about The Zone are currently known, although the project is thought to focus on an alien invasion.

The film will be distributed by Sony, with a script from Guillaume Tunzini and Loucas George serving as producer.

The Zone is scheduled to begin shooting this November.
