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.
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.
