Peter Briggs is directing the film from a script by Aaron Mason and James Cowan. Here's an excerpt from the site's article which describes the plot of this World War II film:

"The plot follows the five-man German crew of the Ilsa -- a King Tiger, the biggest tank of its day -- on a mission to the frigid and fearsome Russian border, where they tread into an ancient mystery by stirring a powerful entity."

Kurtz also told the site that it was a, "reality-based story with horror overtones" and it was also said to a hybrid of World War II movies with supernatural elements as well:

"Our military aspects are more realistic, and mostly akin to the claustrophobic action and tension of Das Boot. We're aiming to do for the tank genre what The Hunt for Red October and Crimson Tide did for submarine flicks. Only, with a supernatural twist. We're upping the ante with visuals, equipment, and scenes that have never been seen in a World War II milieu. In retrospect, it's strange nobody's thought to do this in quite this way before..."
