Altitude Film Entertainment is re-teaming with the Tea Shop & Film Company to launch THE PLAGUE on Cannes buyers, according to Deadline who also reports that 47 METERS DOWN and THE OTHER SIDE OF THE DOOR helmer Johannes Roberts will direct from a screenplay by Roberts and Ernest Riera.

As the title implies, THE PLAGUE will show the horror that results from...

...a devastating, unstoppable outbreak that sweeps the globe, from the Brazilian rainforest to the streets of London, a plague that begins when mankind's appetite for cheap food and consumer goods brings us into contact with species that were previously geographically contained. Spanning the Brazilian rainforest to London streets, The Plague tells the story of a devastating, unstoppable outbreak that sweeps the globe.

James Harris and Mark Lane will produce through their Tea Shop & Film Co. banner. Principal photography will begin in summer 2016.

Roberts recently completed supernatural thriller THE OTHER SIDE OF THE DOOR for Fox International, which was produced by Alex Aja as well as 42’s Rory Aitken and Ben Pugh.
