Doomsday McDowell

DOOMSDAY is coming, and it shouldn't surprise anyone that Malcolm McDowell is involved. The typically sinister veteran has joined the sci-fi epic from Neil Marshall, who significantly expands his terror from the claustrophobic horror of THE DESCENT.

The movie's official synopsis goes a little like this: "A lethal virus spreads throughout a major country and kills hundreds of thousands. To contain the newly identified Reaper, the authorities brutally quarantine the country as it succumbs to fear and chaos. The literal walling-off works for three decades – until Reaper violently resurfaces in a major city. An elite group of specialists is urgently dispatched into the still-quarantined country to retrieve a cure by any means necessary. Shut off from the rest of the world, the unit must battle through a landscape that has become a waking nightmare."

The movie also features Rhona Mitra, Bob Hoskins, Alexander Siddig, Adrian Lester and Marshall's DOG SOLDIERS sarge Sean Pertwee. McDowell will play a brilliant scientist who holds the secret of the deadly virus. He's currently seen being all nefarious on TV's HEROES and will chase Michael Myers in the HALLOWEEN remake, but you should damn well know him from A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, TIME AFTER TIME, CALIGULA or CLASS OF 1999.
Extra Tidbit: McDowell appeared in a 2001 TV movie with Keira Knightley as Robin Hood's daughter.
