I’ve been shouting it from the rooftops for the past couple of years … we need more monster movies, man! Zombies and slashers are way cool, but my heart will forever belong to creatures of all shapes and sizes. A new indie flick called Bleak Sea from director Giacomo Cimini is looking to gnash some new teeth, and we’ve got the promotional trailer and early sales art!
The trailer you see below will be shown at the Cannes Film Festival as a means to get backers interested in financing the feature film project. Dig on the log line: “At the height of the Cold War, in the depths of the North Sea, a British submarine in search of an elusive Soviet weapon will find a far more terrifying enemy lurking in the deep.”
Check out the details as per Undead Backbrain:
Produced by Cimini and Tommaso Colognese, the film project has a scriptwriter on board (Stavros Pamballis, who co-wrote Shirley Adams in 2009). The trailer was shot during the March just past, and featured some excellent actors — Vincent Regan (300, Troy, Clash of the Titans), Samuel Roukin (Happy Go Lucky, Bright Star, Solomon Kane) and Robert Sheehan (Red Riding, The Misfits, The Season of the Witch).
Hit up the above linkage for more including some clues as to what the monster will be. Thanks to DC reader Avery for the heads-up!
