In what seems our first time hearing of the project, Screen Daily has it that Magnet Releasing has acquired U.S. distro-rights to the upcoming sci-fi thriller SYNCHRONICITY. The Jacob Gentry film, which is said to rock shades of BLADERUNNER and DARK CITY, will be released in the U.S. this January.
Starring AJ Bowen, Michael Ironside, Chad McKnight, Brianne Davis and Scott Poythress:
From the creators of The Signal (Sundance 2007) comes Synchronicity, a mind-bending 'Sci-fi Noir' in the tradition of Dark City, Blade Runner, and Alphaville. When physicist Jim Beale invents a machine that can fold space-time, a rare Dahlia appears from the future. He must now find the flower's identical match in the present to prove his machine works. Jim soon discovers that the Dahlia lies in the hands of a mysterious girl, who seduces him into revealing his secrets. Convinced that he's fallen prey to a femme fatale trying to steal his invention, Jim travels back in time to stop her betrayal before it happens. But once in the past, Jim uncovers a surprising truth about the machine, the girl, and his own reality.
SYNCHRONICITY will be up for territory sale (outside the U.S.) at the AFM next month. Keep it here for all updates on the flick.
