Georgina Campbell, best known for appearing in the 2022 horror film Barbarian, has reportedly joined the cast of the upcoming sci-fi film titled Cold Storage. She will be seen alongside Liam Neeson and Stranger Things fame Joe Keery. The film is based on the novel of the same name by author David Koepp.
Novelist David Koepp has also enjoyed a successful career as a Hollywood screenwriter, some of his notable works include Jurassic Park, Spider-Man, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, and Mission: Impossible.
Cold Storage will be directed by British filmmaker Johnny Campbell and will be produced by Gavin Polone under his banner Studiocanal. The official synopsis for the film reads, “Several decades ago, a highly infectious, constantly mutating microorganism — capable of extinction-level destruction — was contained in a military facility. In the present day, the military has sealed the facility’s lowest sublevel, selling the remaining space to a self-storage company. As temperatures rise underground, the micro-organism finds a way to escape — and if left to spread, it will soon uncontrollably multiply around the world. The fate of humanity now rests on a retired bioterror operative and two unlikely heroes employed in the facility, who are caught in a race against time to destroy the organism and save mankind.”
Liam Neeson, who plays the lead in the film, is also signed on to two other projects titled Charlie Johnson in the Flames and Thugs. Both films are currently in the pre-production stages.
