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.”
