The film, which was initially announced in February, will also star Thandie Newton (Crash) and Cillian Murphy (Inception).
The Retreat centers on a husband and wife who rent a remote island cottage while trying to repair their marriage. One day they find a biohazard-suited soldier washed up on the beach, who warns them that everybody on the mainland has been killed by an airborne virus. That’s when the psychological fun-and-games begin…
Carl Tibbets will make his directing debut with the film that’s been described as a cross between Knife In the Water and Dead Calm.
The Retreat has gone from being a nondescript thriller stuck in development limbo, into a film with huge potential, mainly due to the solid cast it’s attracted.
Shooting is due to commence next month on location in Wales.
