Warner Bros. Gets Freaky with ‘Splice’, Plans Summer Release!

Warner Bros. Pictures has officially locked distribution rights to Vincenzo (Cube) Natali’s Splice locking in a June 4th summer release for the Frakenstein-esque sci-fi horror film starring Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley as Clive and Elsa, two young, brilliant and ambitious scientists. The new animal species they engineered have made them rebel superstars of the scientific world. In secret, they introduce human DNA into the experiment. The result is something that is greater than the sum of its parts: a female animal-human hybrid that may be a step up on the evolutionary ladder. They think they may have created the perfect organism, until she makes a final shocking metamorphosis that could destroy them … and the rest of humanity. Produced by Guillermo del Toro, the film received a wide range of reviews making this one of the most talked about films at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. Count me in!
