Image Entertainment has picked up all U.S. rights to the sci-fi thriller “Stranded,” starring Christian Slater, the company announced on Friday at the AFM.
Directed by Roger Christian and produced by Minds Eye Entertainment in association with Moving Pictures Media, the film also stars Brendan Fehr, Amy Matysio and Michael Therriault.
“We’re happy that Image will be our partner once again,” Kevin DeWalt, Minds Eye Entertainment CEO and producer said in a statement. “We look forward to working with them on the sci-fi suspense thriller that is Stranded.”
The story follows four astronauts on board the Ark moonbase who are unexpectedly struck by a series of meteor blasts. Colonel Gerard Brauchman (Slater) and his crew work to stabilize the base, and after removing a stray meteor from the carbon dioxide filter, they realize the spores on the meteor have the ability to replicate cell structure, reproduce and mutate.
Fascinated by the meteor’s uncanny ability to replicate, the crew believes they have discovered a scientific phenomenon. Soon afterward, the crew begins to realize they are not alone. The presence on board begins to target each of them, leaving those remaining to destroy it before all are killed.
