Brian Markinson has a new project lined up, a short film called Elijah the Prophet, which shoots next spring. More info, from
The short film script, ‘Elijah the Prophet’, was penned by the writing duo Zachary and Jesse Herrmann of Brooklyn, NY, whose screenplay beat out 512 other hopefuls worldwide to take top prize as part of the 2010/11 Canadian Short Screenplay Competition.

‘Elijah the Prophet’ tells the comedic story of Elijah: the pious, chummy, and alcoholic prophet whose yearly antics have graced Jewish households for ages; unfortunately, for the childlike servant of God, not everyone understands drunk driving is, for him, a divine right, which soon ends him up on the wrong side of the law.
The producers launched a crowd-funding campaign for the film this week. For more details and to see how you can contribute, head over to Kickstarter.

And a new trailer and the official synopsis for The Divide, with Michael Eklund, Michael Biehn, Milo Ventimiglia, Courtney B. Vance and Rosanna Arquette, out in January:
In this graphic and violent, post-apocalyptic thriller, nine strangers – all tenants of a New York high rise apartment- escape a nuclear attack by hiding out in the building’s bunker-like basement. Trapped for days underground with no hope for rescue, and only unspeakable horrors awaiting them on the other side of the bunker door, the group begins to descend into madness, each turning on one another with physical and psycho-sexual torment. As supplies dwindle, and tensions flare, and they grow increasingly unhinged by their close quarters and hopelessness, each act against one another becomes more depraved than the next. While everyone in the bunker allows themselves to be overcome by desperation and lose their humanity, one survivor holds onto a thin chance for escape even with no promise of salvation on the outside.
