Millennium Entertainment – the company behind Texas Chainsaw 3D – has picked up U.S. rights to psychological thriller Dead Within from director Ben Wagner, his 3:41am shingle and Aengus James and Colin King Miller’s This Is Just a Test Productions, reports Deadline.
“Set six months after a deadly outbreak that has all but ended the human race, a man and woman have survived by isolating themselves in a remote cabin and never opening the door. Now, they don’t have a choice. Starved for resources, they must confront the horrors that threaten them…but what’s inside may be even more toxic than what remains outside.”
Stars Amy Cale Peterson, pictured, and Dean Chekvala (“True Blood”) were locked in a cabin throughout the production in what was filmed as an “immersive” shoot.
Check out a teaser below.
Pic was scripted by Wagner and his actors with Matthew Bradford.
Millennium is plotting a fall multi-platform release while SC Films will distribute internationally.
