Feel the Chill in First Cold Skin Images

Posted on: July 4th, 2016

ColdSkinPosterFrontier(s) director Xavier Gens has wrapped photography on Cold Skin, the long-delayed adaptation of Albert Sánchez Piñol’s 2002 best-seller.

A film version of the novel has been in the works since 2009, when 30 Days of Night’s David Slade was set to direct from a script by Carriers writers Alex and David Pastor. Slade was dropped however, and replaced by Gens, with a fresh script by 28 Weeks Later scribe Jesús Olmo. After a further two years spent in development Hell, this dark tale of isolation is finally on its way, and we’ve got some stills and behind-the-scenes pics to prove it.

Read on for the ominous official synopsis:
On the edge of the Antarctic Circle, in the years after World War I, a steam ship approaches a desolate island far from all shipping lanes. On board is a young man, on his way to assume the lonely post of weather observer, to live in solitude for a year at the end of the world. But on shore he finds no trace of the man whom he has been sent to replace, just a deranged castaway who has witnessed a horror he refuses to name. The rest is forest, a deserted cabin, rocks, silence, and the surrounding sea. And then the night begins to fall…

Cold Skin stars Ray Stevenson (Punisher: War Zone, The Book of Eli), David Oakes (Truth or Dare, TV’s The White Queen) and double-Goya nominee Aura Garrido (The Body, Stockholm).

Cold Skin will be sailing our way sometime in 2017.
