Marina Antunes [Celluloid 11.10.12] scifi thriller

A few weeks back Acort International announced that it had picked up the futuristic sci-fi thriller New Order with intention of a VOD, limited theatrical run and DVD release in North America.

The feature film debut of writer/director Marco Rosson, the movie stars legendary Italian actor Franco Nero as Dr. Cornelius, a doctor in the near future who is working on a cure for a viral outbreak which has wiped out most of the human population.

The full description provides a few more details:

NEW ORDER takes place in 2033, three years after a worldwide viral outbreak which wipes out 90% of the population, and follows a small group of survivors who have banded together and find shelter in a country house inhabited by Dr. Cornelius, a professor working on a cure. But when these survivors soon turn into test subjects in order to find a vaccine, side effects become present and some of the group start to develop extraordinary neurological activity giving them paranormal powers, but with fatal consequences. The film is shot in two vantage points, via the subjective and a video diary which documents the group's progress.

It definitely sounds interesting and Acort obviously has some high hopes for the movie. It helps that they have Nero on board but I'm thinking they're going to need a little more than an Italian star to make this thing successful and the trailer suggests they may have something here. It's definitely a low budget something but there's potential in this trailer and they definitely have my attention.

Stay tuned for more details on the release plans.
