Aaron Ashmore (“Smallville,” “Veronica Mars”) will star in the indie feature The Thaw, opposite Martha MacIsaac and Val Kilmer, says The Hollywood Reporter.
Anagram Pictures is producing the thriller about an Arctic research team attacked by a killer parasite released by melting polar ice caps.
Ashmore will play a college student in the besieged crew.
The Thaw is written by Michael Lewis and Mark A. Lewis. The latter also will direct. Shooting begins in Vancouver on Monday.
