It’s scheduled to be released in theaters on April 12 – but only in Canada! No word yet on when (or if) it’ll hit the USA. Although, given the talent in front of the camera, I think, at a minimum, a VOD/DVD release in the USA will happen.
Image Entertainment picked up USA release rights to the sci-fi thriller The Colony, which stars Laurence Fishburne.
The $16 million Canadian production is directed by Jeff Renfroe, from a script he co-wrote with Patrick Tarr, Pacal Trottier and Svet Rouskov, and it centers on a group of underground survivors fighting to survive after the next Ice Age, fending off an invasion of feral cannibals.
Bill Paxton co-stars with Fishburne.
Paul Barkin, Matthew Cervi and Pierre Even produced.
