The Passage Movie

The Passage MovieThe Passage, the first novel of a zombie apocalypse trilogy by Justin Cronin, is going to be adapted into a movie. The story is set one hundred years in the future, where the human race has slowly morphed into zombie vampires because of a failed attempt to extend human life span. Director Matt Reeves is set to helm the project based on a screenplay by Jason Keller. There's no official release date yet.

"When a secret project to create a super-soldier backfires, a virus leads to a plague of vampiric revenants that wipes out most of the population. One of the few bands of survivors is the Colony, a FEMA-established island of safety bunkered behind massive banks of lights that repel the virals, or dracs —but a small group realizes that the aging technological defenses will soon fail. When members of the Colony find a young girl, Amy, living outside their enclave, they realize that Amy shares the virals' agelessness, but not the virals' mindless hunger, and they embark on a search to find answers to her condition."

Haven't read the book yet, but I think I'm going to buy it right away, can't wait for the film to know the whole story! I'd still be glad to watch a movie adaptation of the Passage though. Would be great if they could cast Saoirse Ronan as Amy, she was really awesome in Hanna... But maybe you have an other actress in mind for the role? Leave your thoughts below.

Anyway, more information about the Passage movie as soon as details emerge.
