Cillian and Thandie's scary island

Cillian Murphy and Thandie Newton are to play a husband and wife trapped on a remote island in a new thriller.

The Inception star and the Crash beauty are to star in new British thriller The Retreat about a couple who rent an isolated island cottage while trying to repair their marriage, Deadline Hollywood reports.

One day they find a biohazard-suited soldier washed up on the beach, who warns them that everybody on the mainland has been killed by an airborne virus, which leads to high-level psychological drama.

Carl Tibbetts, an editor who's worked on Alien Vs Predator, is making his debut as a writer and director with the film, which Sir David Frost is executive producing and Sony Pictures is distributing in the UK.

The project will begin filming on location in Wales in September.
