Tennant, Newton, Isaacs Go Into “Retreat”

David Tennant, Thandie Newton and Jason Isaacs have joined the cast of the psychological thriller “Retreat” for Magnet Films says Screen Daily.

Newton and Isaacs play an estranged couple who head to a remote island getaway in an effort to rebuild their relationship. Tennant plays a dying military officer who arrives on their doorstep with news of a viral pandemic killing millions on the mainland.

Producer Gary Sinyor likens the film to “Dead Calm” with its three sole cast members, remote locale, sexual tension and psychological battle of wits.

Carl Tibbetts will direct from a script he co-wrote with Janice Hallett. Shooting kicks off this May in Canada.
