Jeffrey Donovan (“Burn Notice”) and Matthew Fox (“Lost”) will star in the post-apocalyptic horror movie “Welcome to Harmony,” which will serve as the English-language debut of Spanish director Miguel Angel Vivas (“Kidnapped”), multiple individuals familiar with the project have told TheWrap.

Jaume Collet-Serra (“Orphan”) and Juan Sola are producing through their Ombra Films banner. Vivas and Alberto Marini adapted Juan de Dios Garduno's bestselling book “Y pese a todo.”

The story follows two men and a young girl living in a remote village who remain untouched by a worldwide infection that turns survivors into beasts. Donovan is in negotiations to play the young girl's father, while Fox is set to play the other lead.

Back in 2011, Vivas described the project to Bloody Disgusting as “'28 Days Later’ meets a John Carpenter movie meets [John Boorman's] ‘Hell in the Pacific.'”

Producers plan to start production in February in Eastern Europe.

Donovan, fresh off a successful run as lovable spy Michael Westen on USA's “Burn Notice,” was last seen on the big screen playing Robert Kennedy in Clint Eastwood's “J. Edgar.” He also worked with Eastwood on the 2008 thriller “Changeling.” He's repped by WME and attorney David Matlof.

Fox, who starred on “Lost” and “Party of Five,” recently played the villain taunting Tyler Perry in “Alex Cross.” He also starred opposite Tommy Lee Jones in “Emperor” and briefly appeared in “World War Z.” He's represented by Management 360 and attorney Craig Jacobson.

Vivas made waves in genre circles for his gruesome 2010 horror movie “Kidnapped.” He's repped by WME, Generate and Cohen & Gardner.

Ombra Films’ upcoming releases include the psychological thriller “Mindscape” starring Mark Strong and the Julianne Hough thriller “Curve.”
