Things just got cold as a corpse in here...
...Via Deadline, IFC Midnight has acquired North American rights to director Brendan Walsh's Centigrade! Written by Walsh and Daley Nixon, the film is described as a "contained Arctic thriller," and is based on quite literally chilling events.
"Based on a 2002 incident when a young American couple traveled to the arctic mountains of Norway. After pulling over during a snowstorm, they wake up trapped in their SUV, buried underneath layers of snow and ice. It is soon revealed that the woman is eight months pregnant. Amid escalating tension between them and dwindling supplies, the couple battles -30C temperatures, hallucinations and hypothermia in their struggle to survive."
The film stars Genesis Rodriguez (Big Hero 6) and Vincent Piazza (Boardwalk Empire).
It was produced by Bradley J. Ross, Molly Conners, Amanda Bowers, Vincent Morano, and Walsh.
