Phoenix Heads To Mile Zero

Phoenix Pictures has plans for the female-driven horror thriller “Mile Zero” with James Vanderbilt (“Zodiac”) producing reports Variety.

Erik van Looy (“The Memory of a Killer”) directs, based on an original script by Holly Brix. The story is set at an oil drilling station in Northern Alaska where a grisly massacre occurred some two decades before.

A woman arrives at the station when it reopens in present day, determined to dispel the suspicion that her mother committed the original murders. But when crew members mysteriously start disappearing, a supernatural element is revealed.

Cast is still being determined, but Phoenix aims to start shooting by the end of the year.
