Laurence Fishburne and Kevin Zegers to Join “The Colony”

 If there’s one thing that Hollywood is currently lacking, it’s zombie films. Kidding (Obviously)–and I’m not complaining. The newest addition to the zombie/cannibal craze is the Sci-Fi thriller, The Colony, which is currently in negotiations to cast Laurence Fishburne and Kevin Zegers.

The Hollywood Reporter broke news that the Canadian thriller, which will follow a group of individuals who survive a second Ice Age and must face cannibalistic humans, is in the final stages of casting The Matrix star and Frozen star, respectively. So, it’s not exactly a zombie movie but it’s close enough, right?

The $16 million indie film, which will shoot in Toronto through the end of March, will be directed by Jeff Renfroe, who also co-wrote the script along with Patrick Tarr, Pascal Trottier, and Svet Rouskov.

So far, Fishburne and Zegers are the only names that have been revealed; producers are trying to keep the rest of the cast list under lock and key until the film begins production on February 22.

All I know is this: there’s nothing more exciting and terrifying than a bunch of people trying to each a bunch of people. I’m sold, automatically, thank you. Plus, I’ve been a fan of Zegers ever since the moment he appeared with the basketball-playing Golden Retriever in Air Bud. How can you not love that movie?! It’s a dog.Who plays. Basketball. Movie gold.
