“Anyone that survives this will have to be forgiven for unforgivable things”
When an outbreak hits, Aidan barricades himself inside his apartment and starts rationing food. His complex is overrun by infected Screamers, and with the world falling apart into chaos, he is left completely alone fighting for his life.
“The intensity of this film and the beautiful arc that Aidan has really attracted me to this film. I myself went through an emotional arc filming this,” Posey tells ET. “I signed on to do the project because the writing was so good and I wanted to ‘get my ass kicked’ emotionally and physically. I knew it would be 30 straight days on stunts and emotionally heavy scenes. That really transforms a person and I am a new man because of this film. I learned as much about myself as Aidan does in the film. The stunts were scary and the emotion was vulnerable. It really called to me.”
The unexpected timeliness of Alone — about a global pandemic and being released amid our own ongoing pandemic — is not lost on Posey. The movie wrapped before the coronavirus forced Hollywood to shut down; now, the actor says it could not “come at a better time.”
“The synchronicities of my character Aidan and the whole world right now is pretty remarkable,” Posey explains. “He went from a naïve boy to a strong-willed man. I think the world is much stronger going through COVID-19. We know how to work together as a world and nation to save humanity. As does Aidan.”
The film is directed by Johnny Martin and stars Tyler Posey (Teen Wolf) and Donald Sutherland (The Hunger Games) and Summer Spiro (Westworld).
Now if Alone looks familiar it’s because it is the remake of the South Korean zombie film #Alive that is set to stream on Netflix this September.
