Self-Storage to Be Featured in Sci-Fi/Horror Film ‘Cold Storage’ Starring Liam Neeson

Self-storage will be the featured setting in the upcoming movie adaptation of “Cold Storage,” a science fiction/horror novel written by David Koepp. Academy Award nominee Liam Neeson and “Stranger Things” actor Joe Keery will headline the cast, with Gavin Palone (“Zombieland”) and Jonny Campbell (“Westworld”) signed on as producer and director, respectively, according to a press release from film-production and distribution company Studiocanal.

Koepp, who’s best known for screenplays on films such as “Jurassic Park,” “Spider-Man” and “Mission: Impossible,” also wrote the movie script for “Cold Storage,” which is about a “deadly micro-organism that will stop at nothing to spread” once it escapes the military facility in which its been contained for several decades, according to the release.

“In the present day, the military has sealed the facility’s lowest sublevel selling the remaining space to a self-storage company. As temperatures rise underground, the micro-organism finds a way to escape,” the official premise reads. “The fate of humanity now rests on a retired bioterror operative and two unlikely heroes employed in the facility, who are caught in a race against time to destroy the organism and save mankind.”

Koepp described the story as “scary, funny, exhilarating, surprising and riotously entertaining,” while Campbell called it “classic entertainment combining epic scale and microscopic detail.”

“I was instantly hijacked by David’s mischievously witty tone and his unique blend of comic absurdity and visionary reality,” Campbell said. “Who wouldn’t fall in love with a gut-wrenching alien parasite?”

Studiocanal has financed the film and will kick off worldwide sales next week during the Cannes Film Festival. Principal photography is expected to begin this fall. No release date has been announced.
