'The Colony' scifi-thriller film in development

A scifi thriller is in development. described as 'an eco-horror tale'.
'The Colony'
plot summary:
Forced underground by the next ice age, a struggling outpost of survivors must fight to preserve humanity against a threat even more savage than nature.
imdb listing:
The Colony (2011)

It will begin shooting in the fall.

Special-effects veteran Patrick Tatopoulos is in negotiations to direct "The Colony,"
http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE64K0XC20100521

Sounds like The Day After Tomorrow (2004) with The Thing from Another World (1951) [based on the 1938 novella "Who Goes There?" by John W. Campbell, Jr.] with touches of the colony on LV-426 in Aliens (1986) and probably more stylized bordering on a scifihorror movie like Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010).

something about a comparison to the new Doctor Who & the Ice Warriors was made on io9.

This sounds like it might be fun. I like after-the-fall-of-civilization stories.

Re: 'The Colony' scifi-thriller film released in Canada April 12

We've read about it, we've toured the sets and now we get to see it: the trailer for Jeff Renfroe's The Colony.
length: 2:05
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kRfXd...layer_embedded

The movie stars Laurence Fishburne and Bill Paxton
The action unfolds when a rescue team responds to an SOS call from a nearby colony.

The Colony is scheduled for a Canadian theatrical release on April 12th.
budgeted $16 million survival tale
Filmed on location in Northern Ontario and later in-studio in Toronto
at a location
Sixty stories below ground in a decommissioned NORAD base in North Bay, Ontario,
No zombies and
cited John Hillcoat's The Road (based on Cormac McCarthy's best-seller) as a big influence.

looks pretty good. Of course any film set in the snow area with labs looks like The Thing and some X-Files episodes.
looks like thriller with some action. I'm interested.
I also really like how they used an actual location of a
decommissioned NORAD base in Ontario. It's things like that an James Cameron using a 40 ft. tall unused Nuclear reactor cooling tank in South Carolina for The Abyss that I like to read about.

Supposedly released today in Canada? Is there a wider release? So far it has a 7 rating out of 40 reviews.
