From the Press Release:

The genre-bending horror, Trench 11, shellshocks its way into theatres across Canada on August 31. Get ready to go underground and face your darkest fears.

Northern France, 1918. World War One is reaching its bloody climax and the end can’t come soon enough for Canadian tunneller Berton. His superiors, however, need his expertise to get a team of British and American allies inside a secret underground German base. It seems that the Germans have lost control of a highly contagious biological weapon they were developing that turns its victims into mindless killers. Berton and his team soon find themselves 100 feet underground with hordes of the infected, a rapidly spreading disease, and a platoon of Stormtroopers dispatched to wipe them out.

Berton is played by Rossif Sutherland who was nominated for best leading actor at the Canadian Screen Awards for his captivating performance in River. Other cast includes multi award-winning French Canadian actress Karine Vanasse (The Forbidden Room, Polytechnique), Charlie Carrick (Reign), Shaun Benson (ARQ, Channel Zero), and Ted Atherton (River). Rounding out the cast is award-winning German actor Robert Stadlober (Crazy, Summer Storm) who is playing the role of “Reiner”.

Trench 11 is a passion project for director Leo Scherman, best known for co-creating the Gemini-winning series Cock’d Gunns. Scherman wrote the Trench 11 screenplay with Matthew Booi (Civil War Chronicles).

Toronto-based producer Tyler Levine and his production company Carousel Pictures have been developing the project since 2011. Levine partnered with Buffalo Gal Pictures through their genre Insidious Pictures label, and together shot in Winnipeg and assembled some of Canada’s best to recreate the front lines of war-torn 1918 France.

Production designer Chad Giesbrecht (Goon) took charge of the cities transformation. Director of photography Dylan Macleod (He Hated Pigeons) controls the look, while make-up SFX designer Francois Dagenais (The Witch, Dawn of the Dead) brings his world-renowned artistry to this unique project. Michael Munn (Stories We Tell, Owning Mahowney) is editor.

A number of celebrated producers are involved including EP Martin Katz (Hotel Rwanda, Maps to the Stars), Walter Gasparovic (Spotlight, Eastern Promises) and Phyllis Laing (The Forbidden Room). Isaac Clements is co-producer.

Trench 11 was made possible with the financial participation of Telefilm Canada, Bell Media’s The Harold Greenburg Fund, Manitoba Film and Music and the Cogeco Fund.

Raven Banner Entertainment serves as executive producer and worldwide sales agent, with Raven Banner Releasing distributing the film in Canada. Digital and VOD will launch on September 4. RLJ Entertainment has acquired the film for the U.S.
