    A scifi thriller is in development. described as 'an eco-horror tale'.
    'The Colony'
    plot summary:
    imdb listing:
    The Colony (2011)

    It will begin shooting in the fall.

    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.

    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.
