About The Film
New Order takes place in 2033, three years after a viral outbreak that wiped out 90 percent 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 members of the group start to develop extraordinary neurological activity, giving them paranormal powers but with fatal consequences. The film is shot from two vantage points via the subjective and a video diary which documents the group’s progress.
New Order was filmed entirely in a studio outside Milan, Italy, during the summer of 2011. Up-and-coming writer/director Marco Rosson completed the screenplay and immediately reached out to legendary actor Franco Nero (Die Hard 2, Django Unchained, Cars 2), knowing that the role of Dr. Cornelius was scripted with him in mind. After some discussions Nero agreed to the project, and filming commenced. Shot in 25 days with post-production completed in January 2012, the film was given a world premiere in February at the Los Angeles Italian Film Festival, where it was met with critical acclaim.
