IMO Signs with Mel Gibson was a great movie. Here is an interesting fact. This movie was release in 2002 and it is still available for download on some torrent websites. Right now as we speak there are 330 people downloading that movie from torrent sites, and I am one of them. 275 downloads for a old movie like this one, it is kind of weird isn't it?

The most compelling grey movie I've seen is Altered. It's tense and claustrophobic. Worth checking out.

As far as I know, there has never been a accurate cinematic depiction of "grays" as they are reported in the UFO literature. I'm speaking of movies here, because there has been some fairly decent depictions in various television series and tv movies. But for the big screen, no.
I once listened to an interview on The Paracast with the producer of Fire in the Sky, in which he stated that the studio forced him to revise the appearance of the grays. Their reasoning was that he'd shown them before in an earlier tv movie about abductions(Intruders), and they wanted something different - something more Hollywood.
This seems to be a pattern when it comes to the silver screen - movies come close to showing grays, but never seem to go all the way. It's almost as if some authority has placed a limit on what they can show. You can allude to a gray, but you'd better not show one.

This is exactly what I'm talking about. I don't think the Government has any role with some type of enforcement on making movies about Grey Aliens....but, I think it is more of the writer/director/producer's decision.
Steven Spielberg made Star Wars. He didn't a make a Alien crash at Roswell/US Government cover up through out the years movie. Can you imagine if he had? Wow.
The Grays Sony Pictures Status: In Development Hell; Whitley believes (as of Jan 1, 2010) that this project has been “ditched”. Director: Wolfgang Petersen Producers: Cary Brokaw and John Calley Writer: Ken Nolan Sony Pictures will pay screenwriter Ken Nolan (Black Hawk Down) $3 million for his 75-page "script-ment" (less than a script, but more than a treatment) of Whitley Strieber's as-yet-unpublished alien SF novel The Grays, one of the studio's largest payments for a treatment, Variety reported. It's not clear who'll star in The Grays, but insiders say the lead role is intended for a woman, the trade paper reported.
