Hot off the success of his Incredible Hulk raking in close to $55 million at the box office, director Louis Leterrier is turning his attention to deadly green of another kind. Titled Strays — and dubbed an “eco-action thriller”, it revolves around “group of young consultants who, while on a business trip to Russia, mysteriously wake up in an abandoned, radioactive city. They’re then forced to struggle for survival, with a number of deadly obstacles blocking the way to freedom.”
Who wouldn’t want to spend a weekend in Chernobyl? It’s funny, a few years ago, this would have simply been known as a zombie-flick, but now it’s an ‘eco-thriller’.
Anyways, we welcome Strays to the latest collection of films addressing environmental and radioactively mutated “big bads”. For someone just finishing a film that features gamma rays and big green monsters, this sounds like a natural next step.
