Though curiously, director Todd Robinson has elected not to have any of the actors affect a “Russian” accent, even though, from what I can tell, every single character in the movie are supposed to be Russians. I guess this is one way to go. I know it makes sense in a way — why have a bunch of Americans faking “accents” when they’re all going to be speaking English anyway? Then again, it’s kind of odd to see straight-up American accents when they’re all supposed to be Russians…
Anyhoo. Check out the first trailer for Todd Robinson’s “Phantom”. It’s supposedly “inspired by actual events”. Supposedly.
Ed Harris plays the captain of a Cold War Soviet missile submarine who has secretly been suffering from seizures that alter his perception of reality. Forced to leave his wife and daughter, he is rushed into a classified mission, where he is haunted by his past and challenged by a rogue KGB group (led by David Duchovny) bent on seizing control of the ship’s nuclear missile. With the fate of humanity in his hands, Harris discovers he has been chosen for this mission in the belief he would fail. Phantom is a suspense submarine thriller about extraordinary men facing impossible choices.
Starring Ed Harris, David Duchovny, William Fitchtner, Sean Patrick Flanery, Johnathon Schaech, Lance Henriksen, Jason Beghe, Jason Gray-Stanford, and Julian Adams.
Running not-so silent and deadly March 1st, 2013.
