According to Screen Daily, Thandie Newton, Jason Isaacs and David Tennant will star in Magnet Films’ upcoming thriller Retreat. Newton and Isaacs will play a troubled couple who go on a retreat to an island only to discover a dying soldier (Tennant) who tells them that a deadly virus has begun killing people back on the mainland. Carl Tibbetts will direct based on a script he co-wrote with Janice Hallett. The film will be Tibbetts’ directorial debut as well as Magnet Films’ first thriller, and it sounds awesome. Producer Gary Sinyor compared it to Dead Calm, only better, which is high praise indeed. Shooting is set to begin this May in Canada.
