The film opens several decades ago when a highly infectious, constantly mutating micro-organism – capable of extinction-level destruction – was contained in a military facility. Fast-forward to the present day, the military has sealed the facility’s lowest sub level selling the remaining space to a self-storage company. As temperatures rise underground, the micro-organism finds a way to escape – and if left to spread, it will soon uncontrollably multiply around the world. The fate of humanity rests on a retired bioterror operative and two unlikely heroes employed in the facility – who are caught in a race against time to destroy the organism and save mankind. 

Directed by Jonny Campbell (Westworld), Studiocanal is fully financing with EVP Global Production Ron Halpern, CCO USA Shana Eddy and VP International Production and Development Aaron Ensweiler overseeing for the European studio.

DOP is Tony Slater Ling, editor Billy Sneddon, production designer is Elena Albanese, costume design comes from Nicoletta Ercole. Supervising the VFX are Paul Linden (John Wick franchise) and Nikolas D’Andrade. 

Writer and producer Koepp commented: “Cold Storage has everything I’d want to see in a movie — it’s scary, funny, exhilarating, surprising, and riotously entertaining. Gavin, Jonny and I have huge ambitions for this, and are so excited to get cracking with our partners at Studiocanal.”
