Storage 24

Here's another look at the upcoming sci-fi horror flick from Brit renaissance man Noel Clarke, titled Storage 24.

As a recap its synopsis reads:

London is in chaos. A military cargo plane has crashed leaving its highly classified contents strewn across the city. Completely unaware London is in lockdown, Charlie and Shelley accompanied by best friends Mark and Nikki are at Storage 24 dividing up their possessions after a recent break up. Suddenly, the power goes off. Trapped in a dark maze of endless corridors, a mystery predator is hunting them one by one. In a place designed to keep things in, how do you get out?

Clarke, who co-wrote the screenplay, stars in the film; he plays the lead named Charlie.

Rounding out the starring cast are Antonia Campbell-Hughes as Shelley, Colin O'Donoghue as Mark, and Laura Haddock as Nikki.

The film is scheduled for a UK release on June 29, so I'm hoping I can get one of our *silent* Brit contributors to see it and give us a review; as for whether the rest of the world will see it, I expect so. Maybe not immediately, and not in theaters.

Clarke's been a really busy man over the last 2 or so years, doing just about everything it seems - acting, directing, producing, writing, etc; I'd say he's maybe the most prominent black British movie talent who's still largely unknown outside the UK - specifically here in the USA. We all know about favorites like Idris Elba, Sophie Okonedo, Thandie Newton, and Chiwetel Ejiofor especially; but Clarke seems to have reserved himself strictly for UK audiences. However, that's likely soon to change, as he'll be co-starring in the upcoming Star Trek sequel, and, as he's stated in recent interviews, he certainly isn't resting on his laurels; he definitely has his eye on Hollywood and success in the American marketplace:

"I try to make it to the States twice a year. I have written several scripts and directed two feature movies, and right now my goal is to continue pressing forward with that. I am slowly clawing my way over... I have a few plates spinning in the air at the moment that I think you will be hearing about in the near future."

Until then... currently on his slate are the aforementioned sci-fi horror Storage 24, a rom-com titled The Knot, a sports drama called Fast Girls, and a yet-to-be-titled MMA feature, all of which are to be released in 2012. There's also the UK version of Bad Boys he and Ashley Walters are developing (the script is written). 

Of course we've been ontop of all of these projects.

An interview with Mr Clarke awaits...
