We've been writing about THE COLONY since 2010, when it was first announced that Patrick Tatapoulous was set to direct the post-apocalyptic thriller. While that version never materialized, the long road to THE COLONY finally came to an end when Jeff Renfroe took the helm and the result is...well, you can read The Arrow's take on it HERE.
Set during the next ice-age, THE COLONY follows an outpost of colonists who struggle to survive below the world's frozen surface. Short on supplies, and plagued by illness and internal conflict, the colonists suspect the worst when they mysteriously lose contact with their only other known settlement, Colony 5. When Colony 7's leader Briggs (Laurence Fishburne - Contagion, The Matrix Trilogy) decides to lead an expedition to discover what happened, he is challenged by Mason (Bill Paxton - Aliens, Twister), his former comrade-in-arms, who has his own ideas of what is best for the colonists. Briggs takes two volunteers on the mission, the young Graydon, and Sam (Kevin Zegers - Fifty Dead Men Walking, TV's Gossip Girl), a strong-willed mechanic who seizes the opportunity to confront the icy wasteland that orphaned him. When they reach their destination, the team discover a threat much worse than nature and must battle to save themselves and protect their fellow colonists in what might be humanity's last stand.
THE COLONY is set to be released by Image Entertainment later this year.
