When we last covered Hitman and Frontiere(s) director Xavier Gens' next project we knew it was called The Fallout, would involve an apocalyptic scenario and a handful of people holed up in a shelter underground and that he would begin filming in February. Considering it's now May and we're finally starting to hear about casting for the film, I think it's safe to say that Gens' and company did not make their February target date. That's alright, though, because the film hasn't dropped off the face of the Earth, it's just undergone some changes.

The first is that the producers have dropped The Fallout as the title in favor of The Divide. Secondly, we now have a cast of familiar faces to imagine being holed up in a shelter: Michael Biehn, Milo Ventimigila, Rosanna Arquette, Courtney B. Vance and Lauren German. We're not quite sure who is playing who at this point, but with this casting announcement, Shock Till You Drop also offers up the most detailed plot synopsis to date:

"When a cataclysmic explosion devastates New York, eight strangers take refuge in the basement of their apartment building, a converted fallout shelter designed by their paranoid superintendent Mickey. With just three connecting rooms it's barely big enough, but with stockpiles of food and water, the group are at least safe from the horrors outside, and they settle in and attempt to fathom the catastrophe that has ended the lives of so many of their loved ones.
