It’s hard to not be excited for Xavier Gens’ The Divide as it’s not only from the director of Frontier(s), but it features the rockin’ cast of Michael Biehn, Milo Ventimiglia, Rosanna Arquette, Courtney B. Vance and Lauren German. While Gens sent us your first look at the cast, a close-up shot of a badass Biehn smoking a stogie also found its way online. Now filming, the pic is a 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. 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.
