Warner Brothers releases this science fiction-horror film from director Vincenzo Natali (who impressed us greatly with his ’90s debut CUBE). The story follows a pair of scientists (Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley) who splice genetic material from different animals, including humans, to create a strange new highly intelligent creature known as Dren, who grows at an alarming rate. Natali co-wrote the script with Antoinette Terry Bryant and Doug Taylor. Guillermo Del Toro served as executive producer. SPLICE gained attention during its appearance at this year’s Sundance Festival, attracting the interest of Joel Silver, who picked it up for his Dark Castle Entertainment label and brought it to WB. Release date: June 4.
