Anne Heche and Thomas Jane (pictured above in THE PUNISHER) have signed on to star in the post-apocalyptic sci-fi action film SALVAGE, which Shane Dax Taylor will be directing from a screenplay he wrote with Chad Law (DAYLIGHT'S END). Taylor and Law previously worked together on the 2015 thriller ISOLATION. 

SALVAGE tells the story of 

two couples fighting to survive on a houseboat as it moves down river in a post-apocalyptic America: Everyone is out for their own survival, nothing is as it was and brutality is the new normal. Each of the characters discover sides of themselves they never knew existed, some valiant and some violent.

Heche and Jane will be joined in the cast by W. Earl Brown, Jilon VanOver, and Thomas Jones.

Taylor is producing SALVAGE alongside Steven Schneider, with Stuart Manashil, Corky Taylor, Jeff Bowler, and Bret Saxon serving as executive producers.

Jerry Cantrell of Alice in Chains will be composing the film's score.

I have enjoyed what I have seen from both Taylor and Law before, so I'm looking forward to seeing what they have in store for us with SALVAGE – especially since the project is being described as "THE ROAD set on water" and "THE STRANGERS on a houseboat". Both of those descriptions sound appealing to me.

SALVAGE begins filming in Kentucky this July.
