It’s an extensive interview and you can catch it all here, but some of the highlights are as follows:-
WETA are working on the effects, which will include some motion capture for the creature
Casting is starting this week, with the director looking for an ensemble feel along the lines of Alien and The Thing. Luke Bakker is reading for the role of Heinz, the gunner
Shooting was originally planned for Scandinavia, but is more likely now to be in New Zealand, given WETA’s involvement
Although Briggs wants to satisfy the expectations of those looking for some “splatter”, he wants the film to be a quality production more akin to Aliens than Saw
All of the concept art is embedded below for your viewing pleasure. A supernatural war/horror film, with WETA on the effects and an Aliens vibe aspired to. Could be one to watch out for.
