Are you in the mood to watch a movie about a pandemic while we’re in the middle of a pandemic? If so, you’ll want to be on the look out for a little film called, The Survivalist.
The movie stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers and John Malkovich. It was written by Matthew Rogers and the production just wrapped a couple weeks ago.
It takes place a year and a half after the fall of civilization from a virus outbreak. A former FBI agent (Rhys Meyers) is forced to protect a young woman, who is immune to the disease, from a dangerous gang hunting her led by a psychopath who believes he’s going to use her to save the world (Malkovich).
Sounds a little similar to Children of Men, but obviously not exactly the same.
Yale Productions is the company behind this project. No word on a potential release date, but it’s a pretty safe bet it’ll be released sometime in 2021. I suppose it may enter the festival circuit.
And with the talented John Malkovich involved, there’s a good chance some streamer picks it up.
