The film “centers on Grey Trace, a technophobe in a utopian near-future when computers control nearly everything – from cars to crime-surveillance – who is paralyzed in a freak mugging. But when a billionaire technologist offers him an experimental paralysis cure – an implanted computer chip called STEM – Grey finds that the chip has a voice and a mind of its own.”
Logan Marshall Green (Prometheus, Snowden, The Invitation) headlines the film as Grey Trace and is joined by Betty Gabriel (Get Out, Purge: Election Year), Harrison Gilbertson(Picnic at Hanging Rock, Hounds of Love), Simon Maiden (The Dressmaker, Killer Elite) and Benedict Hardie (Hacksaw Ridge, The Light Between Two Oceans).
The Blumhouse Tilt film will release June 1, 2018, via OTL Releasing.
