Xavier Gens’ Apocalypse ‘The Divide’ Encompasses Genre Cast

Xavier Gens’ (Frontier(s), Hitman) latest, The Divide (formerly The Fallout), is finally in production outside the Millennium Centre building on Main Street in Winnipeg, Canada. The Divide stars Michael Biehn (James Cameron’s The Terminator and Aliens) and Milo Ventimiglia (Pathology, “Heroes”). The two may not be playing the heroes, says the Winnipeg Free Press. The film is as post-apocalyptic thriller set mostly in an apartment building fallout shelter, a serial-killer thriller about a woman afflicted with “face blindness” and a coming-of-age story about a young girl seeking out her birth mother. The film also stars Rosanna Arquette (David Cronenberg’s Crash), Courtney B. Vance and Lauren German (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Hostel 2). German’s character is at the centre of the film, set in New York, which is virtually destroyed in a mysterious explosion in the first act. Eight survivors take refuge in the fallout shelter of an apartment building, where they are menaced first by mysterious men in HazMat suits and eventually by each other.
