Into The Storm puts you in the middle of all the tempestuous action.
TORNADOES are spectacular, awe-inspiring and horrific all at the same time. A fact that director Steven Quale quickly realised when he started his research for the film Into The Storm.
He also saw the potential to create massive, complex tornadoes with the kind of details and realism that hasn’t been done on film before. After all, the last memorable film featuring monstrous tornadoes was 18 years ago with Twister and the technology has advanced so much since then.
Into The Storm features four major tornadoes that hit a small town of Silverton in the United States. In this town a group of stormchasers are present to document the phenomenon.With them is scientist Allison Stone (Sarah Wayne Callies), who wonders if she is suited for the job as this is her first time out on the field.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the town is single father Gary Morris (Richard Armitage), looking for his sons after they get separated during a bout of windy chaos.
Callies – best known for her work in the popular TV series The Walking Dead and Prison Break – was the first to say yes to the project as she has always wanted to do a “big, crazy special effects movie.”
However, when she got the script, it was the story that held her attention.
