Danny DeVito wraps post-apocalyptic thriller with Bill Fichtner & Constance Zimmer

Where the hell's this one been?!?

Keeping quite a low profile, Danny DeVito has just finished shooting his first cinematic thriller, an untitled post-apocalyptic yarn for Shangri-La Entertainment. The flick, currently in post, stars "Entourage" alums William Fichtner and Constance Zimmer (below), as well as Lance Reddick. The flick is being sold at the Cannes market this month by Locomotive.

The film revolves around a wounded cop, a wounded murderer and a sultry nurse. The three are thrust together, as war rages outside the only possible safe house, an abandoned City Hospital. With no doctors and only a few poor decrepit souls as witnesses, it becomes a rats’ maze as the antagonistic trio get separated, and we find out the real reason they are there.

Here's what DeVito had to say about the project:

“I was truly excited about getting behind the camera on this one. It is my first foray into the thriller genre and I’ve enjoyed the challenge of making an 89 minute edge-of-your-seater…”

By first thriller, he must mean one devoid of laughs. Surely THROW MAMA FROM THE TRAIN and WAR OF THE ROSES have some thriller elements, but it sounds like this will have a much graver tone. I'm definitely down, are you?

Speaking of down...
