The Paranormal Activity team – Oren Peli, Jason Blum and Steven Schneider – is getting behind Barry Levinson’s new film called The Bay.

The Cold movie news

The Cold movie

Director Daniel Calparsoro was the first director attached to Ghost House’s Burst 3D, a tale set during the winter. Since that didn’t work out (Neil Marshall is now taking the helm), Carlparsoro is now focusing his efforts on another chilly thriller called The Cold.

Set in Idaho, the film follows seven friends who head off into the wilderness to begin their annual hunting trip. As a snow storm gathers, a big white out starts. Snowed in, cold and isolated, the men begin to question their friendship and loyalties. Soon they are terrorized by an unseen beast. Is it merely the cold? Starvation? Or maybe it’s a Wendigo…
