The 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit?' actor has signed up for alien invasion flick 'Transmission' along with Jason Flemying and Talulah Riley.

'Spiderman' actor Willem Defoe is also in talks for a role in the film, Movie Hole reports.

The British science fiction film will focus on an alien invasion of Earth during a solar eclipse and will be shot in 3-D.

'Transmission' is being developed by Giles Alderson and his writing/ producing partner Martin Owen for Gold Films and is being described as 'Pitch Black meets 28 Days Later'.

Hoskins can next be seen in 'Made in Dagenham' - a drama based on the 1968 strike at a car plant in the town - alongside Rosamund Pike and Miranda Richardson.
