Doomsday scheduled...

Rogue Pictures have announced a US release date for Doomsday - March 14 - and unleashed a synopsis for the flick, which reads as follows...

"In Doomsday, a lethal virus spreads throughout a major country and kills hundreds of thousands. To contain the newly identified Reaper, the authorities brutally quarantine the country as it succumbs to fear and chaos. The literal walling-off works for three decades - until Reaper violently resurfaces in a major city. An elite group of specialists, including Eden Sinclair (Rhona Mitra), is urgently dispatched into the still-quarantined country to retrieve a cure by any means necessary. Shut off from the rest of the world, the unit must battle through a landscape that has become a waking nightmare."

But far more fascinating is a recent post by Marshall on his official myspace blog, which reveals Doomsday isn’t a horror flick, and that he hates reading reviews of early screenings.

Go to his myspace to read the blog, then poke around his page like some sort of strange stalker for the next few weeks while we wait for a UK date.
