Carrie Stetko (Kate Beckinsale, u.a. "Underworld") ist US-Marshall am unwirtlichsten Ort der Welt: in der Antarktis. Sechs Monate Sonne, sechs Monate Nacht und das extreme Klima halten die Bewohner der wenigen Forschungsstationen des Kontinents in Trab. Hier am Südpol muss man sich aufeinander verlassen, nicht einander umbringen...
...denkt Marshall Stetko jedenfalls, bis sie die tiefgefrorene Leiche im Eis findet. Ermittlungen unter extremen Bedingungen erwarten sie, denn die Verdächtigen sind über den ganzen Kontinent verstreut, und sie ist auf die Kooperation der von verschiedenen Staaten betriebenen Forschungsstationen angewiesen...
AICN sprach mit Steve Lieber... Ausserdem gibt es bei AICN eine Kritik von Capone... [...] while there are two or three interesting chase scenes set on tethered ropes that lead from building to building during a blizzard, and a really nasty sequence involving Beckinsale getting frostbite, there is very little I could recommend about WHITEOUT with a clear conscience. In fact, I'd go so far as to say this movie is insulting to dumb people. [...]
Bei STYD gibt es ein Poster zum Film...
WizardUniverse.com sprach mit Gabriel Macht, u.a. über die "Whiteout"-Verfilmung... [...] We shot on Lake Winnipeg in the middle of nowhere for [the movie's setting of] Antarctica. It was 50-below, freezing. It was an insane shoot. Then we went to Montreal and shot everything indoors. It was the hottest set I've ever been on because you'd wear all this extreme weather gear and you were working inside a studio. Even though it looks like we're shooting in Antarctica, we were sweating bullets the entire time.
STYD meldet... Whiteout, a murder mystery based on Greg Rucka's graphic novel of the same name, is blowing into theaters this fall. Sources tell ShockTillYouDrop.com that Warner Bros. is penciling in a September 19th release date for the the Dark Castle-produced film. It's a comfy spot right now booked for freaky family fare like Igor and Neil LaBute-directed "Sam Jackson's a crazy neighbor" flick Lakeview Terrace. [...]
Bei FHNC gibt es erste Szenenbilder...

Bei Slashfilm.com gibt es eine Beschreibung des Trailers, der auf der Comic-Con gezeigt wurde - und mehr... [...] Creator Greg Rucka insists that the film is even better than his book.
"They’ve taken the best of what Steve Lieber and I created," gushed Greg Rucka. "There are things Steve and I wished we could do on the comic book page but just wouldn’t have worked on the page.
He insists that there are moments and scenes in the film that made him jealous. There is stuff that he wished could have been included in the graphic novel. And while a big potion of the movie is faithful to the book, there is unfortunately some character changes. Lilly is not in the film. She is replaced by a character named Price. Rucka explains that there are not many women in the Arctic, and that is why she has been replaced with a male character.
The movie was filmed in Winnipeg in (at times) minus 40 degrees. The actors endured countless hours in the freezing cold. Driving to and from the set they would always see at least one car that crashed because of the snow. [...]
HNR meldet... Actors Alex O'Loughlin and Columbus Short have joined the cast of Whiteout for producer Joel "Lethal Weapon" Silver's Dark Castle Entertainment.
Actress Kate "Underworld" Beckinsale will star for director Dominic "Swordfish" Sena, with shooting scheduled for Montreal and Manitoba.
Based on the Greg Rucka/Steve Lieber, ONI Press graphic novels, the story revolves around a lone U.S. marshal 'Carrie Stetko' (Beckinsale) assigned to Antarctica to investigate the continent's first homicide.
With only three days until the onset of a 6-month winter, the marshal must solve the crime before Antarctica is plunged into darkness and she becomes stranded with the killer.
O'Loughlin and Short will both play pilots.
Jon and Erich Hoeber wrote the screenplay.
The film will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.
