Laurence Fishburne and Kevin Zegers May Star in Sci-Fi Thriller THE COLONY
Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix, Mystic River, CSI) and Kevin Zegers (Dawn of the Dead, Frozen) are in final talks to star in The Colony. THR reports that the actors are nearing a deal to star in the the indie sci-fi thriller about "a group of underground survivors after the next Ice Age fending off an invasion of feral cannibals."
Jeff Renfroe is directing based on a script he co-wrote with Patrick Tarr, Pascal Trottier, and Svet Rouskov. The rest of the cast list is being kept quiet for the $16 million Canadian indie. Filming is slated to begin in Toronto on February 22, and last until March 30. Zegers has handled zombies, so why not cannibals? I like Fishburne in sci fi films, so this should be a good fit for him. What are your thoughts?
