When it comes to Barry Levinson’s The Bay, things have been rather quiet.
Over the last year, we’ve seen some behind-the-scenes stills and weird concept drawings leak out. Nothing too revealing. Then came yesterday, which brought us news that the film – produced by Paranormal Activity‘s Jason Blum – was added to the Toronto International Film Festival’s Midnight Madness slate.
Utilizing the “found footage” angle, The Bay chronicles an unprecedented biological disaster unleashed from the waters of the Chesapeake Bay- an isopod parasite, carrying a horrific untreatable disease, that jumps from fish to human hosts. The story unravels via video footage from the town’s victims and I’m hoping we get some good creature feature action going in this one.
A pair of official photos have been released – they don’t give us much, but hey, it’s the most we’ve seen so far from this film. Lionsgate is going to distribute at some point – no release date has been set.
