Filmmaker David Karlak’s sci-fi short film “Rise,” which starred the late Anton Yelchin, will be adapted into a feature for Filmula and Cross Creek.
The story is set in a dystopian future where man’s attempt to create artificial intelligence has spun wildly out of control, leading to a war between man and machine. Karlak, who will direct the feature, wrote the original short with “Saw” series scribes Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton.
Johnny Lin, Brian Oliver, Roy Lee and Trevor Engelson will produce and Lin will fully finance and produce the film with the plan for this to be the potential launcher of a film franchise.
