Sarah Polley and Adrien Brody have joined the science fiction thriller “Splice” for Copperheart Entertainment & Gaumont reports Reuters.
Helmed by Vincenzo Natali (“Cube,” “Cypher”), the story explores a dark vision of the world of genetic engineering in which two young scientists (Polley and Brody) become superstars by splicing different animal DNA to create fantastical new creatures.
They ignore the legal and ethical boundaries and introduce human DNA into their experiment. Natali, Antoinette Terry Bryant and Doug Taylor penned the screenplay.
Guillermo del Toro and Don Murphy are producing. Production is slated to begin in November in Toronto.
