Written by Guillaume Lemans (Anything for Her [+see also:

), Jimmy Bemon and Mathieu Delozier, the story kicks off as a strange and deadly mist envelops Paris. A group of survivors finds refuge on the upper floors of apartment blocks and on the roofs of the capital. With no information, electricity, food or water, a couple attempts to survive this disaster and save their daughter... But as the hours go by, one thing becomes quite clear: there is no help on the way, and if they want to make it through this catastrophe alive, they will have to try their luck in the mist… 

Produced by Guillaume Colboc for Section 9 and by Nicolas Duval for Quad Films, Dans la brume is being co-produced by Esprits FrappeursTF1 Studio (which will handle the French distribution and international sales), TF1 Films Production and Canadian outfit Christal Films. Having also been pre-purchased by Canal+, the feature is being shot over nine weeks in Paris and the Paris region. It should wrap on 19 April.

As a reminder, Quad Films is the producer of the movies by duo Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano (such as Untouchable [+see also:
