Some pretty big news hit the web tonight, only there’s nothing to be too excited about – yet. Although details are being kept under wraps, two horror tycoons have joined forces to bring us a new tale of horror. The film is entitled The Colony and will be produced by Room 101 and Vertigo Entertainment. Read on for the skinny.
Participant Media (The Visitor) has set up eco-horror tale THE COLONY, based on a pitch by Stacy Title and Jonathan Penner.
Steven Schneider of Room 101 (read his ongoing blog here only on B-D) and Vertigo Entertainment’s Doug Davison and Roy Lee are producing. Gabriel Mason will exec produce the project.
Vertigo most recently produced The Eye and Shutter, and its upcoming projects include Tale of Two Sisters (The Uninvited) with DreamWorks, The Strangers with Rogue/Universal and Quarantine with Screen Gems. Vertigo changed this industry with their remake of The Ring back in 2001.
I guess you can say this film is in some pretty good hands? What do you think?
