Lions Gate Digs Into "The Descent"

by | June 24, 2005 | Comments

Neil Marshall, director of the resoundingly popular cult flick "Dog Soldiers," has struck a deal with Lions Gate to distribute his next movie in North America, says Variety. Written and directed by Mr. Marshall, "The Descent" is a horror movie that centers on "six young women on a caving adventure who are trapped underground and find themselves hunted by a race of humanoid predators."

The cast includes Shauna Macdonald ("Niceland"), Nora-Jane Noone ("The Magdalene Sisters"), Natalie Mendoza ("Code 46"), and Alex Reid ("Last Orders").

"As he did with ‘Dog Soldiers,’ Neil knows how to deliver the scares," says LG exec Peter Block. And while the movie might be pretty darn good, Lions Gate might want to hold off on that release date for a while; the similarly-themed fright flick "The Cave" is already scheduled to hit theaters at the end of the summer.
