The official site for Neil Marshall’s “Doomsday” has come online, and it has a lot of groovy little nuggets for those interested in the movie. A lot of background stuff, pictures, conceptual art, but no trailer as yet. The film has been in production for a while, and it seems to have been pushed back to 2008, when the original date, I believe, was late 2007. For fans of Marshall’s latest two movies, “Dog Soldiers” and “The Descent”, this is one of the more anticipated horror/sci-fi films of the year (or next year, as the case may be).
Great Britain, 2007. A deadly plague, known as the “Reaper Virus,” has broken out, killing hundreds of thousands in its wake. In desperation, the British Government evacuates as many survivors as it can out of the infected area, and then builds a wall, preventing the remainder from escaping. Thirty years later, with the wall still up and the victims all but forgotten, the virus breaks out again. The Government decides to send a crack team of operatives, led by Major Eden Sinclair, into the hot zone to investigate the possibility of a cure.
Starring Rhona Mitra, Bob Hoskins, Alexander Siddig, Adrian Lester, Sean Pertwee, and written and directed by Neil Marshall.
