LOS ANGELES - July 23, 2013 - Image Entertainment, an RLJ Entertainment (NASDAQ: RLJE) brand, has officially slated THE COLONY from Director Jeff Renfroe (One Point O). Laurence Fishburne (Matrix Trilogy), Bill Paxton (Aliens) and Kevin Zegers (Mortal Instruments: City of Bones) headline an all-star cast in this savage and unrelenting thriller about mankind's greatest enemy: himself.
Written by Patrick Tarr (American Psycho), Pascal Trottier (Blind Fear) and Svet Rouskov (Silent Cargo), THE COLONY will debut on Ultra-VOD on Aug. 22, 2013 and in-theaters on Sept. 20, 2013 in Los Angeles, New York and major U.S. markets. The announcement was made today by Image Entertainment’s Chief Acquisition Officer, Bill Bromiley.
“Laurence Fishburne, Bill Paxton and Kevin Zegers create a solid ensemble in this chilling thriller,” said Bromiley. “Laurence, Bill and Kevin have established loyal fans in the genre community throughout the years, which will propel the success of this film.”
THE COLONY opens as an endless winter engulfs Earth. Humans struggle to survive in remote underground outposts. When Colony seven receives a distress call from a nearby settlement, Sam (Zegers) and Briggs (Fishburne) race through the snow on a dangerous rescue mission. What they find at the desolate base could mean mankind’s salvation—or its total annihilation. Terrifying discoveries will unfold that will change the rules of survival forever.
THE COLONY was produced by Paul Barkin, Matthew Cervi, Pierre Even and Marie-Claude Poulin and executive produced by Peter Graham, Marc Schaberg, Noah Segal and Mark Slone.
