Subterranea: The Movie



Subterranea is a feature film currently in development. It is an adaptation from British Progressive Rock band, IQ's album of the same name. It is slated to begin production in January of 2013.


Subterranea follows a man with no name, who, after being contained his entire life within a darkened cell, never seeing the light of day or another human being, is released into "society" for the first time as an adult. With no more walls to contain him, he faces a brand new world and the unknown, full of unlimited and threatening horizons.

He meets and interacts with other human beings for the first time on the outside. Aided by the people around him, he discovers that he's the cornerstone of an orchestrated social experiment, devised by the man who held him captive, and the man he must now find, the Provider.

Setting off on a quest for the truth and attempting to make meaning of his life, his reality begins to close in all around him. In a world where everyone is a stranger and yet somehow connected to him, who can he trust? Who is in control? Who is inside?



Principal photography for Subterranea has officially begun! We will be creating a blog on the IQ website for the filmmakers to post updates to the IQ fanbase directly. Keep watching this space for details.
