If you like your horror flicks with an ecological twist, then The Colony should be right up your alley.

The film, which will be based on a script by Stacy Title and Jonathan Penner, revolves around "a group of survivors forced underground by the next ice age. There, they must fight to preserve humanity against a savage threat." Yeah, that's all we know about it. "Savage threat" is pretty vague -- I mean, are they fighting against other groups of people? Have they wandered into an underground bunker next to a bunch of the monsters from The Descent? Your guess is as good as mine...

THR's Heat Vision broke the news recently that Patrick Tatopoulos will direct the film. Tatopoulos started his career as special effects guru, before moving into the director's chair with Underworld: Rise of the Lycans. The filmmaker is also attached to I, Frankenstein. The Colony begins filming this fall. We'll keep you posted as more plot details are unveiled and as casting commences.
