Whiteout gets new Spring release date.

Back in May, I reported that the film version of Greg Rucka’s graphic novel Whiteout would be landing in theaters on Sept 19th. It has now been pushed back to Spring of 2009.

According to Shocktilyoudrop.com, Whiteout will be released on April 24th, 2009.

Kate Beckinsale (Underworld, Pearl Harbor) is starring as U.S. Marshall Carrie Stetko. Stetko has been sent to Antarctica to solve the continent’s first murder. The six months of sun are coming to an end and Carrie has little time to catch the killer before the sun sets and she is stuck there, with the killer, for the six months of darkness.

Gabriel Macht (The Good Shepherd, Because I Said So) is playing a UN operative that is also on the case.

Also staring are Tom Skerritt (River Runs Through It, Alien, Top Gun) and Columbus Short (Darius from NBC’s Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip).

The director is Dominic Sena (Kalifornia, Swordfish, Gone in Sixty Seconds).
