Quad and Foster Join ‘Pandorum’

Overture Films is boarding the sci-fi action film Pandorum, with Dennis Quaid (Legion, The Horsemen) and Ben Foster (30 Days of Night) in final negotiations to star. The movie is being produced by Germany’s Constantin Film with its subsidiary Impact Pictures; the pair are behind the “Resident Evil” franchise. “Pandorum” centers on mysterious events aboard an abandoned space craft, with Quaid and Foster as crewmen who must discover what’s happened to them and to the planet they’re orbiting. German helmer Christian Alvart (Case 39, Antibodies) is directing from a script he wrote with Travis Milloy. The movie is scheduled to shoot this summer in Berlin; there was no word on whether Overture had acquired a waiver from SAG. Overture Films will release the film in North America.
