Patrick Tatopoulos To Direct THE COLONY
Director Patrick Tatopoulos (“Underworld: Rise of the Lycans”) is slated to direct The Colony, according to Heat Vision Blog. Tatopoulos was originally a special effects expert, but “Lycans” has made him a much-sought-after director. He is also scheduled to direct “I, Frankenstein”.
The Colony tells the tale of the next Ice Age. Those who survive must move underground and fight to save humanity. The original script was written by Jonathan Penner and Stacy Title. It has been fine tuned by David Lee Johnson.
Summit and Participant Media are financing the project. Producers are Room 101’s Steven Schneider and Doug Davison and Roy Lee of Vertigo Entertainment. Executive producer is Gabriel Mason and Jonathan King will oversee the project for Participant Media. Filming will begin later this year, with a release sometime in 2011.
