Whiteout is an upcoming movie adaptation of the 1999 comic book by writer Greg Rucka and artist Steve Lieber. The film is directed by Dominic Sena and is starring Kate Beckinsale and Gabriel Macht in the lead roles. The action thriller Whiteout is slated to be released on September 11, 2009.
Here below a first look at Kate Beckinsale and Gabriel Macht in the movie Whiteout:
“A U.S. marshal (Kate Beckinsale), the only one assigned to Antarctica, must investigate a murder on the frozen continent within three days before the arctic winter begins. She crosses paths with a U.N. operative (Gabriel Macht), also investigating the murder.” (Source: Wikipedia)
The film is primarily set in a bright world of ice and sunlight, an unconventional approach to the murder mystery genre. Both real and fake snow were used in production.
Even if the plot is set in Antartica it does not make the film that much exceptional so far… I hope there will be some good acting to complete the landscape…
But for once the original author of the graphic novel, Greg Rucka, applauded the film adaptation of his source material (not like the bitter Allan Moore about the Watchmen movie). So there is reason to hope for Whiteout!
