Screen Media has acquired worldwide rights to director Diego Hallivis’ time travel sci-fi drama Curvature, about an engineer who travels back in time to stop herself from committing a murder, ahead of today’s American Film Market, says THR. Screen will release Curvature in North America, with a bow planned for early 2018.
A mind-bending time travel drama in the vein of Timecrimes and Looper, Curvature examines the difficulty of letting go while asking how much you would risk doing what you believed was right. Lyndsy Fonseca, Linda Hamilton, Glenn Morshower, Alex Lanipekun, Zach Avery, and Noah Bean star.
“Helen Phillips is a young engineer struggling with the heartbreak of the recent suicide of her husband, Wells Phillips, a physics genius and co-founder of Curvature Research. He was on the cusp of his greatest professional triumph—a time machine prototype shrouded in secrecy—until his long-simmering depression became uncontrollable. Helen’s grieving is interrupted when she wakes up one morning, disheveled and panicked, her memory damaged. The phone rings and a voice, sounding uncannily like her own, warns that she’s in danger. Soon Helen is on the run from unknown pursuers while she follows a trail of clues she seems to have left for herself to find. She quickly realizes that she has actually traveled thirty-six hours back in time, but why? Is it to uncover the truth about her husband’s death? Or is it, as she soon suspects, to stop the past version of herself from committing a violent and irreversible crime?”
In this exclusive first look from 1nMM Productions, a woman (Lyndsy Fonseca) receives a phone call preparing her for a home invasion that’s yet to happen. The caller knows way too much, setting up a suspenseful sequence.
