Official Synopsis for Quarantine

ON

Andrew Fiscella joins the cast

Principal photography has begun on Quarantine (not “Quarantined” as previously reported), John Erick Dowdle and Drew Dowdle’s American spin on the Spanish claustrophobic shocker known as Rec (click on the title for a rave review). Hostel‘s Jay Hernandez and “Dexter” star Jennifer Carpenter lead the cast; today we’ve learned Andrew Fiscella has signed on board as well. Fiscella is also appearing in Screen Gems’ upcoming Prom Night remake.

ShockTillYouDrop.com has been issued an official plot synopsis for the film. Read on…

Television reporter Angela Vidal (Jennifer Carpenter) and her cameraman (Steve Harris) are assigned to spend the night shift with a Los Angeles Fire Station. After a routine 911 call takes them to a small apartment building, they find police officers Wilensky (Columbus Short) and McCreedy (Andrew Fiscella) already on the scene in response to blood curdling screams coming from one of the apartment units. Unbeknownst to them, a woman has contracted a rare strain of rabies. When they try to leave the building with those injured from a wild attack by the infected woman, they find that they’ve been locked in. Indeed, there are police, SWAT and CDC crews securing the building. But phones, internet, televisions and cell phone access have been cut-off, and officials are not relaying information to those quarantined inside.

We love that there’s a character named “McCreedy” – a possible wink to Kurt Russell’s similarly named character in The Thing, except the spelling is off.

More on Quarantine soon!
