quietearth [Celluloid 07.30.12] scifi horror

Giacomo Cimini is a busy man. A week ago we brought you the exclusive with his entire short film The City In The Sky, and two years ago we reported on his Cold-War set Lovecraftian horror trailer Bleak Sea which won the Trailermade contest back in 2010. It's been in development, but was recently put in turnaround at Working Title Films whose behind a ton of films like Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead, and Anna Karenina. He's also working on two other projects.

Bleak Sea was originally set during the Cold War, but was rewritten by Stavros Pamballis who has the project set in the future. Here's the synopsis:

2040. When the world's most advanced nuclear submarine finds itself facing an indescribable and unpredictable enemy, the fate of the crew, and the world itself, rests on the shoulders of a rookie diver with an undiscovered talent, and a female first officer with a potentially devastating secret.

Giacomo has brought in talented comic book artists Francesco Mattina, Riccardo Burchielli, Stefano Caselli and Giuseppe Camuncoli from the Italian Job Studio for the concept art you can see beneath.

To boot, we have the original trailer which got yanked awhile ago, but is now back online.

no more news on this project? dead in the water (no pun intended)? this one i was particularly excited about, too bad it has faded from memory so to speak. mayhaps finding r'yleh and so on so fourth would be a cool project.
