Maika Monroe and Ed Skrein join forces for sci-fi thriller Tau

Tau Maika Monroe Ed Skrein Federico D'Alessandro

Newly-minted scream queen Maika Monroe (THE GUEST, IT FOLLOWS, INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE) won't be travelling too far from horror for her next outing.

She has just boarded the sci-fi thriller TAU from director Federico D'Alessandro (storyboard artist/animatics supervisor for Marvel flicks since THOR in 2011), which is currently in pre-production. Monroe will be starring across from Ed Skrein, who recently led TRANSPORTER REFUELED and played the villainous Ajax in DEADPOOL.

The film is being produced by David S. Goyer and Kevin Turen with a script from Noga Landau.


Once a street-smart grifter, Julia (Monroe) is the latest victim kidnapped and held captive in a fatal experiment. The only thing standing in the way of her freedom is TAU, an advanced artificial intelligence developed by Alex (Skrein), her captor. TAU is armed with a battalion of drones that automate a futuristic smart house.  

TAU’s potential is only limited by his understanding of the world he exists in, but TAU is ready for more. Julia, showing resourcefulness and courage, must race against time to bridge the boundaries between man and machine, connect to TAU and win her freedom before she suffers the same fate as the previous subjects.

So, DEADPOOL's origin plus DEMON SEED and a pinch of EX MACHINA? I'm in! More on this story as it breaks!
