Gens' The Fallout is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi film set in a desolate New York being billed as a combination of Assault on Precinct 13 with Lord of the Flies, which is not a pairing that makes a ton of sense out of the gate (one is about a siege on a police station, the other children stranded on a tropical island). However, if the script being written by newcomers Karl Mueller and Eron Sheean is about a group of wasteland children who defend their outpost from pillaging marauders, then I am 200% on-board despite how disappointing Hitman turned out to be.
The Fallout has a number of experienced producers attached, whose previous releases range from The Killing Room to Mullholland Drive, one of whom told Screen Daily, "With a collective of 'End of the World' movies hitting the theatres presently, this film will undoubtedly stand out like a ravenous Pit bull in a school playground... brace yourselves cause this film has a serious bite to it!" Which is a curious choice of words, so maybe my hopes for a kid-centric post-apocalyptic movie aren't all that far off. I guess we'll find out next year, as Xavier Gens begins calling "Action!" in February of 2010.
