Envision Media Arts (EMA) announced today that Peter Facinelli ("The Twilight Saga") and Yuliya Snigir (A Good Day to Die Hard) will co-star in Freezer, an action thriller shooting this month in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Facinelli joins Dylan McDermott in the film directed by Mikael Salomon from a script by Tom Doganoglu and Shane Weisfeld. Lee Nelson and David Buelow will produce for Envision Media.
In the film, Robert (McDermott), an everyday guy, finds himself tested beyond human endurance when he awakens to find himself locked in an industrial freezer by Russian thugs. They insist he returns the $8 million dollars he stole from them, the only problem is, Robert has no idea what they are talking about. Surprised as anyone would be, Robert finds he is not alone in the freezer when he finds Sam (Facinelli) hiding behind a series of boxes. Unsure of each other, but stuck in a battle together, the two must join forces and fight for their lives before freezing to death, as the truth slowly reveals itself.
Producer Lee Nelson stated: ďPeter Facinelli will surprise a lot of people with this character. There is a subtlety and depth to his choices that keeps us guessing at every turn. Itís something we havenít seen from him before and itís truly exciting to watch.Ē
