FilmNation Entertainment is set to finance the feature version of Andrew Will's sub-$40 million action thriller short "The Prototype" says Deadline.
Not to be confused with the video game series of the same name, the story follows an experimental drone soldier being hunted by the FBI’s elite Critical Incident Response Group after it escapes from a top-secret military base and goes on the run.
Will ("Archangel") pens and helms the film which "Act Of Valor" filmmakers the Bandito Brothers will produce. Will, Max Leitman, Shawn Wallace and Sean Cushing will also produce. The original short can be watched below:
