5th Passenger (2015) is a new sci-fi movie from director Scotty Baker. Looking at the poster you can see a lot of familiar faces from various Star Trek installments and Doug Jones from The Strain, Hellboy and Pan’s Labyrinth. The trailer looks very suspenseful and I was glad to see a lot of familiar faces. Scott Baker currently has 5th Passenger on KickStarter with a 65K goal of which they already have about half of already. Starring in 5th Passenger are Doug Jones, Marina Sirtis and Robert Picardo.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Los Angeles, CA- October 9th, 2014
Indie sci-fi horror, 5th Passenger, will commence principle photography this winter
at Space Command Studios. Helmed by newcomers Scott Baker and Morgan Lariah,
it features Marina Sirtis from Star Trek: The Next Generation , Tim Russ, Robert
Picardo and Manu Intiraymi from Star Trek: Voyager. And Doug Jones from
Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth, currently on The Strain and Falling Skies.
Set in 2151, after the Yellowstone Caldera volcano erupts throwing the Earth into
chaos, 5th Passenger tells the story of a secretly pregnant female officer and her
four man crew adrift in deep space in an escape pod after their transport ship
explodes before reaching the new home planet. They fight amongst themselves as
they run low on air, but must work together to find a vicious alien hiding aboard
their craft before it kills them all.
Director and co-writer, Scott Baker’s desire to create this film comes from his love of
classic sci-fi thrillers like Alien, Event Horizon and John Carpenter’s The Thing.
Pre-production is currently underway and principle photography will begin this
winter after production wraps on Marc Zicree’s epic science fiction film, Space
Command with the help of crowdfunding.at:
