Through some test screening information that was presented to the public, we have learned that the grizzly bear thriller formerly called Red Machine has been picked up by Open Road Films. The company previously had great success with another man-versus-nature pic last year, The Grey.
Further, it appears Red Machine is getting a new title: Endangered. No release date has been set.
Starring James Marsden, Thomas Jane, Scott Glenn, Piper Perabo and Billy Bob Thornton, the film focuses on a deputy whose mission is protecting the threatened grizzly bear suddenly finds himself conflicted when a massive rogue grizzly wreaks havoc on a local Alaskan community.
Enlisting the help of his estranged brother, he enters the labyrinthian Grizzly Maze to track down his wife who’s gone missing before the bear does. As the body count mounts, and an infamous bear hunter enters the fray determined to take down the bear he’s been waiting for his whole life, no one is safe in the harsh Alaskan wilds.
