Whiteout will land in theaters on Sept 19th

A release date has finally been set for the film version of Greg Rucka’s graphic novel Whiteout.

It will be released on Sept 19th.

Interestingly enough, it will be competing with another Kate Beckinsdale film: Nothing But the Truth will open that day also. NbtT is a drama that was inspired by the Valerie Plane case.

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).
