While we don’t have plenty of data about the film, the tiny plot summary alone has us interested. Set within the near future, thirty young men and ladies are sent into region in search of a replacement home. However, the crew descends into madness reverting to their most primal urges, wondering what the real threat is: what’s outside the ship, or who they are becoming inside. So, Lord of the Flies, in space. Great for fans of dystopian films or psychological films. Probably not great for people who are already introverts. Colin Ferrell is set to star in the film with Lily-Rose Deep (Johnny Deep’s daughter) and Tye Sheridan.
