Ah, horror in the depths of the ocean, doesn’t get much better than that now does it! Phantom should hopefully deliver the goods as it has an impressive cast which includes Ed Harris, David Duchovny, William Fichtner, Natascha McElhone and Dagmara Dominczyk.
The film is written and directed by Todd Robinson who has worked on a number of TV shows and also wrote the excellent film White Squall starring Jeff Bridges. There is no news as yet on a release date, but a lengthy synopsis and some posters have been revealed, check it all out below:
“A Soviet diesel-electric submarine attempts to launch a nuclear weapon at the United States Navy’s Pacific Fleet. In the end, one man stood between the apocalypse and the survival of mankind. But, in the indigo depths of the South Pacific, man and machine are not alone.“
“Suspicion between the superpowers is at its peak and the Americans are staging a mass Naval exercise in the Pacific. To observe the manoeuvres submarine Captain Dmitri Zubov, an experienced sailor but a man troubled by a past he struggles to live with, sets sail on what is the final mission of Soviet submarine B756. Armed with multiple torpedoes and a single tactical nuclear ballistic missile the sub is also fitted with a cloaking device that can render them invisible to the Americans.
When B756 fails to make a position report – the last that is heard from the sub it was 500 nautical miles NW of the Hawaiian Islands – Fleet Command classifies the vessel as missing. Fearing western retaliation they send their entire fleet after B756.
Meanwhile deep under the Pacific Ocean Captain Zubov and the ship’s crew of the B-756 uncover a plot that will destroy humanity. Zubov is determined to foil the plot but as the sub is pushed to its very limits and air supplies diminish, he and the crew face almost impossible odds and an increasingly unsettling sense that they are not alone…“
