|Kevin Zegers at TIFF 2008|
Although originally there was talk of it back in 2008, Director/Writer Jeff Renfroe finally will begin production on his Sci-Fi/Thriller The Colony. Starring Laurence Fishburne and Toronto's v. own Kevin Zegers, the Film begins filming at the end of February through the end of March at Pinewood Studios here in Toronto.
The Colony centers around a group of Survivors whom after being forced underground by the coming of the next Ice Age, must protect Humanity against an unknown savage force. The Film has a budget of $16 million and is being backed by Telefilm Canada.
Currently, a vast majority of the stages at Pinewood Studios are dedicated to Guillermo Del Toro's Pacific Rim.
