Renny Harlin is set to direct the new military-themed horror film The Refuge, by sci-fi, action writer Ben Sztajnkrycer, Deadline reports.
The movie centers on “Sergeant Rick Pedroni, who comes home to his wife Kate changed and dangerous after suffering an attack by a mysterious force during combat in Afghanistan. Officials say her husband suffered a heavy brain injury, but Kate knows it is more than PTSD. As Rick undergoes unsettling therapy with other traumatized soldiers, Kate discovers he has been possessed by a malevolent spirit.”
Yariv Lerner, Rob Van Norden, Gary Lucchesi, Michael McKay, and Harlin are producing the movie which is a Revelations Entertainment and B2Y production. Highland Film Group’s Delphine Perrier and Arianne Fraser are Executive Producing alongside Revelations Entertainment’s Kelly Mendelsohn.

I love making horror films because of the visual opportunities and character studies they offer. The Refuge is a terrifying journey into the deepest corners of the human spirit. It’s not just a regular horror film about a haunted house or a merciless killer. It’s an examination of what can happen when an evil, demonic spirit possesses an innocent mind,” Harlin states.

Harlin has a long history of delivering great action-packed films such as Die Hard 2, Cliffhanger, Driven, and the series “Burn Notice,” so I think it’s safe to say we have high hopes that The Refuge will awesome.
The film set to begin filming in Bulgaria this month.
