The Divide Movie

Director Xavier Gens is working on The Divide (previously titled The fallout), an upcoming post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller movie. The story revolves around a group of people taking refuge in the basement of an apartment building after an explosion devastates New York City. The film should be released in 2011.

Here's an early teaser poster of The Divide:
(Click on the poster to enlarge.)
"When a cataclysmic explosion devastates New York, eight strangers take refuge in the basement of their apartment building, a converted fallout shelter designed by their paranoid superintendent Mickey. With just three connecting rooms it’s barely big enough, but with stockpiles of food and water, the group are at least safe from the horrors outside, and they settle in and attempt to fathom the catastrophe that has ended the lives of so many of their loved ones.
But suddenly men in HAZMAT suits storm their shelter and open fire. The strangers join forces in a desperate bid to take on this enemy, with no one understanding what these HAZMATS are looking for and what drives them to be so merciless. With fatalities on both sides and the remaining HAZMATS temporarily pushed back and locked out, the worst is yet to come for the group. Cabin fever sets in as the perception of the shelter shifts from safe-haven to claustrophobic rat-trap."

I'm totally sold! I'm fan of all those science-fiction movies set in a post-apocalyptic setting. And Xavier Gens' take on the genre seems promising. You can sign me up for The Divide movie!
