Splice, the next project from director Vincenzo Natali (Cube) has been floating around for some time now, looking for a home. Which is a surprise, really — it’s got some solid pedigree backing it. It’s produced by Guillermo Del Toro, and stars Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley. The story is about two rogue scientists who splice (natch) human DNA with that of assorted animals, creating a curious, freaky organism that grows into something completely unexpected — and possibly dangerous. The creature is rather fascinating, and the actors are certainly top-notch. However, there’s no release date as of yet, and it’s even possible, according to Slashfilm, that it’ll go straight to On Demand or DVD (and could possibly end up being titled Hybrid, which I don’t like as much).
Despite the obvious Species similarities, it still looks pretty damn fascinating. Now, a new clip has been released.
There’s also a poster that’s been kicking around for some time (click to enlarge):
Yes, it’s clearly borrowing from the old Alien poster. Regardless, it looks pretty interesting, especially considering some of the photos we’ve seen. Check for yourself:
