Coming off a huge role in Denis Villenueve and Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner 2049, “Halt and Catch Fire’s” Mackenzie Davis is set to star in Vivarium, an unique sci-fi thriller directed by Lorcan Finnegan, reports Deadline.
“Davis will play a young woman who, along with her fiancé, is in search of the perfect starter home. After following a mysterious real estate agent to a new housing development, the couple finds themselves trapped in a maze of identical houses and forced to raise an otherworldly child.”
XYZ Films is launching sales on the project to foreign buyers in Cannes this week. Fantastic Films’ Brendan McCarthy and John McDonnell will produce in co-production with Belgium’s Frakas Productions, with XYZ exec producing and handling global sales. Vivarium will also receive additional support from the Irish Film Board.
Finnegan burst onto the film scene in 2016 with his debut feature Without Name, an ecological horror-thriller that premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival.
The project is eyeing a September start of production.
