Five friends, who have prepared to have a fun time together while vacationing at a remote lake house, are instead now bracing themselves to really fight for their lives against an alien invasion and mass-abduction. Principal photography has begun on the sci-fi thriller, ‘The Recall,’ Minds Eye Entertainment, in association with Bridgegate Pictures and VMI Worldwide, have announced.
Filming on the action film has commenced in British Columbia, Canada, under the supervision of ‘The Ghostmaker’ director, Mauro Borrelli. The upcoming movie was written by Reggie Keyohara III and Sam Acton. ‘The Recall’ stars RJ Mitte, Jedidiah Goodacre, Niko Pepaj, Laura Maria Bilgeri, Hannah Rose May and Wesley Snipes as “The Hunter.”
Kevin Dewalt, the CEO of Minds Eye Entertainment, made the announcement about the launch of principal photography on the drama. “I am thrilled to collaborate with the team from Bridgegate Pictures and VMI Worldwide to bring the script ‘The Recall’ to life,” said Dewalt. “We couldn’t be more proud to work with a young cast and the talented Wesley Snipes to create a film that sci-fi audiences will be excited to see.”
Borelli is a former collaborator of director Tim Burton, and has also worked as the film illustrator for such blockbuster films as ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ and ‘Captain America.’ He will capitalize on his experience as a top visual artist to bring ‘The Recall’ to life on the big screen.
‘The Recall’ will be shot for the new Barco Escape three-screen, panoramic theatrical format, which fully surrounds audiences and offers the ultimate immersive cinema experience. Portions of the film will also be shot in Virtual Reality.
Minds Eye International has North American distribution rights to ‘The Recall,’ while VMI Worldwide has international rights. The sci-fi movie will be produced by Kevin Dewalt and Danielle Masters, and will be executive produced by Guy Griffithe, Andre Relis, Frank White and Isabella Ragona. The thriller is the first film of a six-picture production slate announced by the companies at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival.
