Earlier in the week we bought your news that Maple Pictures were planning to distribute Bruce McDonald's new movie adaption 'Pontypool' throughout Canada. Well today thanks to Bloody Disgusting there's some new images online too.
Check out the full plot synopsis below...
"Shock jock Grant Mazzy has, once again, been kicked-off the Big City airwaves and now the only job he can get is the early morning show at CLSY Radio in Pontypool Ontario, which broadcasts from the basement of the small town’s only church.
What begins as another boring day of school bus cancellations, due to yet another massive snow storm, quickly turns deadly when reports start piling in of people developing strange speech patterns and evoking horrendous acts of violence. But there’s nothing coming in on the news wires. Is this really happening?
Before long, Grant and the small staff at CLSY find themselves trapped in the radio station as they discover that this insane behavior taking over the town is actually a deadly virus being spread through the English language itself.
Do they stay on the air in the hopes of being rescued or, are they in fact providing the virus with its ultimate leap over the airwaves and into the world?"
'Pontypool' is eyeing a 2009 release. More details as we get them.
