A couple of years ago, we brought you news that post apocalyptic horror/sci-fi film Welcome to Harmony was in the works, which is set around World War Three. The film is based on a novel by Juan De Dios Garduno called ‘Y Pesse A Todo’ and has been directed by Spanish director Miguel Angel Vivas (Kidnapped).
It has now been announced that Jeffrey Donovan (Burn Notice) and Matthew Fox (Lost) will star in the post-apocalyptic horror, and will serve as Miguel Angel Vivas’ English-language debut.
The film shows World War Three as the US, Britain and Israel battle against Iran, China and Russia. Chemical weapons are used which wipe out everyone in each country and the only survivors are a father and daughter and their hated neighbour who all live in Bangor, Maine. Unlucky for them, they have to confront unwanted visitors. Donovan is in negotiations to play the young girl’s father, while Fox is set to play the other lead.
Vivas is currently writing the script for the project alongside Alberto Marini, former director of international productions at Filmax, who helped develop key titles at the studio including the [REC] films, The Way and Sleep Tight. “It’s an apocalyptic horror film in the mould of ‘I Am Legend’ and ’28 Days Later,’” says Vaca Films’ Borja Pena.
Production is due to commence in February in Eastern Europe.
