The film is an action/thriller that centers around a traumatized ex-soldier who wakes up in the back of a van with a kidnapped boy. He learns he only has nine minutes and 37 seconds of consciousness to find out how and why he is there. Nine minutes and 37 seconds: why such a specific number? The character details and release date have not been announced yet, but we will anxiously await more details.

What do you guys think? Are you exited to see Ian Somerhalder on the big screen? Are you going to go see The Anomaly in theaters?

And remember to catch Somerhalder on The Vampire Diaries Thursdays at 8:00pm on the CW44!
