Resolution Independent is headed for the Arctic, producing action-adventure movie “Cold Patrol” with Nikolai Pigarev directing.

Resolution topper Pete Ford is producing “Cold Patrol” with shooting starting next spring in the Baltic portion of the Arctic Circle at several Soviet era towns and military bases.

“Cold Patrol” is a reteaming for the Australian-based company and Pigarev following their collaboration on “Meteletsa: Winter of the Dead,” touted as the first-ever Russian language zombie movie.

Resolution made the “Cold Patrol” announcement at the American Film Market. It’s selling “Meteletsa” at AFM and the movie will have its world premiere Sunday at the Leeds International Film Festival.

“Cold Patrol,” penned by Christopher Webster, follows an elite military dog sled team uncovering a plot to release a dangerous new organism — while fending off zombie polar bears.

Ford told Variety that plans are for “Cold Patrol” to shoot in several Baltic towns that were set up by the Soviet government for mining and military uses before being abandoned in the 1990s. The budget will be in the $6 million to $8 million range.
