Jack Reynor (“Transformers: Age of Extinction”), James Franco (“127 Hours”), Zoe Kravitz (“X-Men: First Class”), and Dennis Quaid (“The Day After Tomorrow”) have all signed on to star in the sci-fi thriller “Kin”.
The project is a feature film remake of Jonathan and Josh Baker’s SXSW short film “Bag Man” and the pair are returning to direct the project using a script by Daniel Casey.
The story revolves around a recently released ex-con (Reynor) and his adopted younger brother who are forced to go on the run. Chased by a vengeful criminal (Franco), the feds and otherworldly soldiers, their only protection is a found weapon of mysterious ancestry.
Quaid will play the father of the siblings, Kravitz a young woman who joins them on the run. Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen will produce and shooting begins in October.
