'Descent' Director Targets Mitra for 'Doomsday'
Virus flick comes from Rogue
Marshall's new film, which will begin production in early 2007, will come from Rogue Pictures, the genre arm of Focus.
"Doomsday" focuses on the aftermath of a lethal virus that kills hundreds of thousands and leads to a major national containment, the construction of a literal wall. Well, 30 years later, the virus returns. Stupid virus. It's up to a group of specialists, including Mitra's Eden Sinclair to do something or other.
"Neil's intense filmmaking style will keep audiences on the edge of their seats throughout 'Doomsday,'" promise Rogue Co-Presidents Andrew Karpen and Andrew Rona. "Rhona is a stunning actress, and we're currently lining up a strong cast for the other lead roles."
Mitra is best known for her regular TV roles, which have included stints on "The Practice," "Boston Legal" and "Nip/Tuck." Her big credits include "The Life of David Gale" and the upcoming "Shooter" and "The Number 23."
