Gravitas has acquired the 3D sci-fi action film Nest 3D, starring Resident Evil: Retribution‘s Li Bingbing, Kellan Lutz and Kelsey Grammer, out of the ongoing AFM market. The film could be retitled to Guardians of the Tomb. It opens in China this coming January with Gravitas releasing here in the States some time in 2018.
The film, the largest Chinese-Australian co-production to date, “Revolves around a team of scientists who while making the discovery of the century lose a colleague in an ancient labyrinth. The group must battle their way through a swarm of deadly, man-eating funnel web spiders and discover the secret behind the arachnids’ power and intelligence – before it’s too late.”
This sounds more terrifying than the “Harry Potter” ride at Universal Studios Orlando.
Stef Dawson, Shane Jacobson and Wu Zun also star.
Kimble Rendall (Bait) directed Nest, which was filmed in Australia. Along with starring, Chinese actress Li also will produce with Gary Hamilton, Ying Ye, Mark Lazarus and Serena Deng, and executive producers Mike Gabrawy and Elliot Tong.
