Karl Urban, Ashley Greene to Star in Action-Adventure ‘Snowblind’

Karl Urban, Ashley Greene, and Forrest Goodluck will star in the action-adventure “Snowblind.”

Marcus Alqueres (“The Flying Man”) will direct “Snowblind.” The film is developed by the Coalition Group’s Johnny Wunder and Luisa Iskin, who join Traveling Picture Show Company’s Carissa Buffel, Kevin Matusow, and Steve Prince in producing the film under their newly formed alliance, and alongside Ground Control’s Scott Glassgold.

13 Films will introduce the pic to international buyers at the American Film Market, which opens on Nov. 1. UTA is representing the U.S. rights.

Hank Woon adapted the script from Don Roff’s novel of the same name. “Snowblind” follows the story of a U.S. Ranger haunted by painful memories of a family tragedy, who becomes stranded with his platoon in a remote chalet in the woods. As they fight for survival and against their own inner demons, they are torn apart by a discovery they make — a box filled with $5 million in cash and a dark, disturbing secret.

Alqueres worked on the visual effects of “300,” “Source Code,” “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” and “The Adventures of Tintin” He directed, produced, and edited the sci-fi short “The Flying Man,” which was acquired by Sony Pictures.

Urban can next be seen in Disney-Marvel Entertainment’s “Thor: Ragnarok” and is currently in post-production on “Bent,” starring Sofia Vergara and Andy Garcia. Greene is best known for portraying Alice Cullen in the “Twilight” franchise, and stars in “Antiquities” and “Accident Man.” Goodluck is best known for Alejandro González Iñárritu’s “The Revenant,” starring Leonardo DiCaprio, and recently wrapped production on “The Miseducation of Cameron Post,” starring Chloë Grace Moretz.

The Traveling Picture Show Company produced Osgood Perkin’s “The Blackcoat’s Daughter,” released by A24, and Universal’s “A Walk Among The Tombstones,” starring Liam Neeson.

Alqueres is represented by UTA and Ground Control. Urban is repped by UTA, and Johnson and Laird Management. Greene is represented by CAA and Management 360. Goodluck is repped by The Gersh Agency and Principato-Young Entertainment.
