The Pact's Caity Lotz joins sci-fi thriller The Machine, as does Toby Stephens

Caity Lotz can currently be seen being freaked-out by terrors both supernatural and natural in IFC Films' THE PACT, but it appears as though the actress is ready to do some terrorizing of her own.

The Hollywood Reporter has it that Lotz has been cast as the lead in THE MACHINE, a futuristic thriller from Content Media and director Caradog James.

Additionally, Toby Stephens (DIE ANOTHER DIE) has joined the film as well.

Here's the official synopsis, via Content Film's website: Set in the near future and with the world plunged into another cold war, Britain’s Ministry of Defense is on the verge of developing a robotic soldier. This soldier, called The Machine, looks and sounds human, but has the strength, speed, and ruthlessness beyond that of any living person. The project is near completion when a bug in the programming, a side effect of it being too close to human coding, causes the prototype to destroy the lab and everyone in its path in spectacularly violent fashion.

Undeterred by this setback, lead scientist Vincent McCarthy obsessively continues his work on The Machine in secret, away from the prying eyes of those who seek to destroy him.

The company also claims that THE MACHINE "combines the psychological intensity of ‘Alien’ with the action and heart of’ Blade Runner’."

Principal photography will commence on July 23th in Cardiff, Wales.
