Scotty Baker, the director best known for his alluring but oddly strange short films such as "The Diary of Anne Frank of the Dead" will helm this new science fiction project. Based on a script by Baker, Morgan Lariah (2-Star) and David Henri Martin, the film follows a crew that have been forced to leave their starship in an escape pod that holds only four passengers but soon they realize there is a fifth passenger that is both alien and out to kill them. In the same vein as "The Thing" and "Event Horizon," the "5th Passenger" claims it will have you gripping your seat or your partner's hand during its gripping moments of terror and thrills.
"5th Passenger" stars Marina Sirtis (Star Trek: The Next Generation), Tim Russ and Manu Intiraymi (Star Trek: Voyager), Armin Shimerman (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) and Doug Jones (Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth, Falling Skies).
Production is underway with release date set for later this year.
