Christopher Webster [Celluloid 10.06.15] France post apocalyptic scifi horror thriller

French writer/director Mathieu Turi has graced these pages before when his short film Sons of Chaos impressed us all back in 2011. Since then, Turi has been working behind the scenes of a few little films you've probably never heard of like Luc Besson's Lucy and Lasse Hallström's The Hundred Foot Journey. Nothing major!

Today we're super excited to report that Turi has partnered with Xavier Gens (The Divide, Frontier(s)) who will produce his first feature film called Hostile, which definitely has an intriguing, high-concept premise... and it's PA!

"HOSTILE could be an instant classic," said Gens about the project. "I have found, in Mathieu Turi’s script, a deep and emotional story, a new look at the genre and a completely insane and never before seen creature. That’s why I want it to be made... definitely a new talent to watch out for."

Hostile will shoot December 15, with Full Time Films' Olivier Chateau, Eric Gendarme and Thomas Lubeau producing along with Gens.

About the film:
After a worldwide epidemic, most of the planet’s population is killed. Only a few thousand have survived and are struggling to find food and shelter. But they’re not alone: they must hide from mysterious creatures that hunt at night...

Juliette, a young woman whose life has taught her to handle things on her own, is the only one in her group to have the guts to go anywhere near cities to find food. But, on her way back to the camp one afternoon, she loses control as she’s driving...

She wakes up upside down, stuck in her car with a broken leg, in the middle of the desert, and... it's nighttime.

That's all for now, folks!

Here's Turi's self-produced 2011 short film Son's of Chaos:
