Splice Rolling for '09
If you happen not to remember us talking about a film called Splice, let me refresh your memories.
Sarah Polley, Adrien Brody and Delphine Chanéac will be under the direction of Cube helmer Vincenzo Natali as he takes us into a world of beautiful and terrifying world of genetic engineering...
"Clive and Elsa are superstars of the genetic engineering world. They specialize in splicing together DNA from different animals to create fantastical new hybrids. The charismatic couple wants to use human DNA in a new hybrid – something that could yield astronomical medical benefits. The pharmaceutical company that funds their research, however, is more interested in exploiting their earlier triumphs for easier, short-term profit. Clive and Elsa secretly conduct their own experiment. The result is Dren: an amazing creature who exhibits an array of unexpected developments, both physical and intellectual. Dren exceeds their wildest dreams…and, ultimately, their most terrifying nightmare."
The synopsis hasn't changed at all since the last time we saw it, and that's good news. To top that off Bloody Disgusting got word that Splice has started shooting as of today! Filming will last just to near the end of February.
The designs we've seen so far for Splice make it out to be far from your average creature feature(“Amazing Images from Splice!” – October 2007), but we won't find out for sure until sometime in 2009!
