Neill Blomkamp’s Inferno to Begin Filming in March
Shooting on the horror-thriller will take place in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
By Chris Morse
The upcoming horror/thriller project from Neill Blomkamp, which he stepped down from RoboCop Returns for, is set to begin filming this March, Dead Entertainment learned today. The principal photography for Inferno will kick off a few months into the new year on location in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the same location as the setting of the story.
Inferno follows a cop who is called to investigate a seemingly ordinary murder in the New Mexico desert and it soon becomes clear that something bigger and possibly extraterrestrial is at play. The hunt for the killer puts him face-to-face with a humanoid beast that will stop at nothing to exterminate the one witness to the crime.
Starring in the film is Taylor Kitsch (21 Bridges, True Detective) as the investigating police officer. Blomkamp is directing but it’s unclear at this time if he also had a hand in writing the screenplay. Production is set to begin early next year in March with no scheduled release date set for the time being.
