New Trailer for Retreat Shows Cillian Murphy Dealing with a Deadly Virus ... Again
Posted 05.06.11 by Chris
If you're making a movie about a group of survivors set against a backdrop where a deadly virus outbreak has the potential to wipe out humanity, than who better to call on than Cillian Murphy? After all, he's a veteran of that scenario after dealing with the zombie-causing virus in 28 Days Later.
And that's exactly who first-time filmmaker Carl Tibbetts has cast in the thriller Retreat. The movie is about a couple (Murphy and Thandie Newton) who are vacationing on a desolate island when they come across a psychopath, Jamie Bell, who has news of a deadly outbreak that is sweeping through Europe. And it's Bell's character who decides the only way to survive the outbreak is to board up the house and wait it out. That wouldn't be too hard, except that Bell is crazy.
The movie is currently being shopped around Cannes and, as of yet, does not have a U.S. distributor.
