Looks like (per Screen Daily) Image Entertainment has picked up US rights to Jeff Renfroe’s sci-fi horror pic The Colony, which stars Laurence Fishburne, Kevin Zegers and Bill Paxton. Hopefully we’ll get word on their release plan soon.
“Beneath the icy surface, survivors of Colony Seven struggle as food supplies dwindle and temperatures continue to drop. Plagued by illness and internal conflict, the colonists suspect the worst when they mysteriously lose contact with Colony Five – the only other known settlement. Sam, a strong-willed mechanic with a tragic past, joins a team headed up by Briggs on a dangerous expedition to find out whathappened. After a hellish trek, they discover a threat much worse than imagined, and now Colony Seven must win asavage battle to preserve the last of humanity.”
Jeff Renfroe, Patrick Tarr, Pascal Trottier and Svet Rouskov penned the screenplay. Alcina Pictures, Item 7 and Mad Samurai produce. Sierra Affinity is still handling international sales.
