Patrick Tatopoulos, who was a legendary effects and concept artist on projects as diverse as Godzilla, Stuart Little, I Robot and Unverworld, before taking the directing reins of Underworld: Rise Of The Lycans, has a new film up his sleeve, called The Colony.
THR reports he’s in negotiations to direct the film, which ‘revolves around a group of survivors forced underground by the next ice age. There, they must fight to preserve humanity against a savage threat.’ There’s no cast attached as yet, but production is set to begin this autumn.
However that does beg the question as to what’s happening Tatapoulos’ I, Frankenstein. When that was first announced a few month ago, it was due to start shooting in July. However if he’s looking around for other projects, it would appear the film, in which the bolted together man will be updated to the modern day and stand as the only thing that can save humanity from an uprising of supernatural creatures, has been delayed.
