Being off the grid for vacation has its advantages. Missing an alien invasion might be one of those.
The Recall has just began shooting (starring Breaking Bad’s RJ Mitte and Wesley Snipes) yesterday in Canada. Little details are known about the film outside the premise, but our friends at the Minds Eye Entertainment did share with some info on the project. Personally, it may actually be more relaxing to return to work post-alien invasion than to try to catch up on everything piled on my desk after a normal vacation.
Minds Eye Entertainment In Association With Bridgegate Pictures and VMI Worldwide Begin Production on The Recall
LOS ANGELES, August 4, 2016 – Minds Eye Entertainment, in association with Bridgegate Pictures and VMI Worldwide, proudly announce that principal photography for the sci-fi, action, thriller, The Recall, has commenced in British Columbia, Canada. Mauro Borrelli (The Ghostmaker) directs a screenplay by Reggie Keyohara III (Send In The Clowns) and Sam Acton. The Recall stars RJ Mitte (“Breaking Bad”), Jedidiah Goodacre (Descendants), Niko Pepaj (“Awkward”), Laura Maria Bilgeri (Toby Goes to Camp), Hannah Rose May (“Ballers”) and Wesley Snipes (Blade, The Expendables 3, Chi-raq) as “The Hunter.” Kevin Dewalt, CEO of Minds Eye Entertainment, made the announcement today.
“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.”
In The Recall, when five friends vacation at a remote lake house, they expect nothing less than a good time, unaware that planet Earth is under an alien invasion and mass-abduction.
Borelli, who is a former collaborator of Director Tim Burton and the film illustrator for blockbuster films such as Pirates of the Caribbean and Captain America, capitalizes on his experience as a top “visual” artist to bring THE RECALL to life on the big screen.
The Recall will also 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 films 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 Recall will be produced by Kevin Dewalt (Forsaken, The Tall Man) and Danielle Masters (Forsaken, Wolfcop), and will be executive produced by Guy Griffithe (WTF: World Thumbwrestling Federation, School Spirits), Andre Relis (War Pigs, The Perfect Weapon), Frank White (The Tall Man, Faces In The Crowd), and Isabella Ragona (Forsaken, Stranded). The Recall is the first film of a six-picture production slate announced by the companies at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival.
