Jason Isaacs is Off On Retreat
With Thandie Newton and David Tennant

Jason Isaacs, Thandie Newton and, in a pleasing bit of good news for the actor, David Tennant have all signed up for the psychological thriller Retreat.

First-time director Carl Tibbetts is the man charged with sending them all to a remote island where danger lurks.

Isaacs and Newton are playing a couple trying to work on their relationship in glorious isolation when their relative peace is broken by the arrival of a man (Tennant) in terrible shape and military uniform, who warns them that there’s a deadly virus loose on the mainland.

“It reminded me of Dead Calm when I first read it. Only better,” producer Gary Sinyor tells Screen Daily. “It’s got a similar sexual tension but the battle of wits between the characters and plot twists are constantly surprising. We’re delighted to have secured three of the UK’s most powerful actors.”

They’ll kick off shooting this May in Canada.

I like the sound of this
Hopefully it will have some nice twists and turns in it. I ike the sound of a zombie outbreak or 28 days later plot underlying it all, might have a similar atmosphere and tension to Right at your Door, which is a seriously underrated film. More
