Geek blogs blew up over the weekend posting the latest images from Guillermo Del Toro's upcoming film, Splice. The movie is directed by Vincenzo Natali and stars Adrian Brody and Sarah Polley. From what I've read on Ain't It Cool News and Bloody Disgusting, its your typical "renegade geneticist create a new life form by splicing human and animal DNA only to find in horror the error of their ways" movie. Here's the official description taken from Geeks of Doom:
The film is about Elsa and Clive, two young rebellious scientists, defy legal and ethical boundaries and forge ahead with a dangerous experiment: splicing together human and animal DNA to create a new organism. Named Dren, the creature rapidly develops from a deformed female infant into a beautiful but dangerous winged human-chimera, who forges a bond with both of her creators - only to have that bond turn deadly.
No release dates have been given for the film.
