Liev Schreiber, Sally Hawkins and Romola Garai are to star in a sci-fi film called The Last Days On Mars. It’s being directed by Ruairi Robinson on locations in the UK and Jordan (and sets at Elstree studios) from mid-July. It’s about a group of astronauts lost on a space station.
I-sells.co.uk were called on to supply galvanised spiral ducting and suspension rings for the set, which Stanley arranged to be delivered directly to the studios.
The plot is described as follows: “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.”
