“Vikings” and “Warcraft: The Beginning” star Travis Fimmel is set to star in the Andrew Baird-directed, Bryan Edward-penned sci-fi thriller “Zone 414”. The project marks Baird’s directorial debut.
The story is set in the near future in a colony of state-of-the-art humanoid robots. When its creator’s daughter goes missing, he hires private investigator David Carmichael (Fimmel), to bring her home.
David teams up with Jane, a highly advanced and self-aware A.I., to track down the missing daughter. Moving through the dangerous iron jungle, they rapidly piece together the mystery, uncovering a crime that leads them to question the origins of Zone 414 and the true purpose behind the ‘City of Robots.’
Baird, Martin Brennan, Jib Polhemus, and Deborah Shaw-Kolar will produce and principal photography is set to begin in November.
