It was announced today that production has wrapped on an apocalyptic thriller directed by Danny DeVito. The currently untitled project stars William Fichtner (Black Hawk Down), Lance Reddick (Fringe), and Constance Zimmerman (Entourage) as three strangers who must band together in an apocalyptic environment. The logline is as follows:
The film revolves around a wounded cop, a wounded murderer and a sultry nurse. The three are thrust together, as war rages outside the only possible safe house, an abandoned City Hospital. With no doctors and only a few poor decrepit souls as witnesses, it becomes a rats’ maze as the antagonistic trio get separated, and we find out the real reason they are there.
Rights to the pic will be shopped at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival. Directing-wise, DeVito has been behind the camera on such varied fare as Matilda, Death to Smoochy, and Throw Momma from the Train. Hit the jump to read the full press release regarding his latest effort.
