The shoot for Ruairi Robinson’s Last Days On Mars wrapped last week at Elstree Studios in England. Here’s the official blurb for the British-produced sci-fi:
"As their last day on Mars draws to a close, the astronaut crew is on the verge of a major breakthrough – collected rock specimens reveal microscopic evidence of life. Meanwhile, communication is underway with AURORA, the approaching spacecraft that will relieve the crew of their operations. In their last hours on the planet, two astronauts go back to SITE 9, a cavernous valley on the surface of Mars, to collect further evidence of their discovery. But a routine excavation turns deadly when one of them falls to his death and his body taken host and re-animated by the very life form they sought to discover."
Last Days On Mars stars Elias Koteas, Romola Garai, Johnny Harris and Liev Schreiber (pictured). All those involved will no doubt be hoping that, being British, the movie will be unaffected by Hollywood’s dreaded Martian curse! We’ll find out when it opens in 2013.
