Retreat – David Tennant, Thandie Newton and Jason Isaacs in Dead Calm type of film
Posted by LiveFor on February 22, 2010
According to Screen Daily, the film, to be directed by newcomer Carl Tibbetts, follows a couple (played by Newton and Isaacs) who are seeking to rebuild their relationship by taking time out on a remote island but their peace is shattered when they find a man in military uniform (Tennant) half-dead on their doorstep who tells them there is a lethal virus killing millions on the mainland.
Magnet Films producer Gary Sinyor said: “It reminded me of Dead Calm when I first read it. Only better. It’s got a similar sexual tension but the battle of wits between the characters and plot twists are constantly surprising. We’re delighted to have secured three of the UK’s most powerful actors.”
Therefore, I suggest that Billy Zane should also star as we all know he is a cool dude (can someone get me a photo of Billy Zane holding a card saying Liveforfilms.com?)
Shooting it due to start filming this May in Canada.
