Patrick Tatopoulos, the special-effects maven behind the werewolves in the Underworld movies, has recently taken a seat behind the camera as a film director, and his next movie will be a post-apocalyptic sci-fi environmental disaster movie called The Colony.
He's in talks to direct the movie, with production starting in the fall, The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog reported:
Stacy Title and Jonathan Penner wrote the script, which was rewritten by David Lee Johnson. "Colony" revolves around a group of survivors forced underground by the next ice age. There, they must fight to preserve humanity against a savage threat.
Last year, Tatopoulos directed Underworld: Rise of the Lycans.
