Alex Garland To Helm “Ex Machina”

“28 Days Later” and “Dredd” scribe Alex Garland will make his directorial debut on the $15 million original sci-fi thriller “Ex Machina” at DNA Films.

The story centers on a billionaire programmer who handpicks a young employee to spend a week at his remote estate and participate in a test involving his latest invention: an artificially intelligent female robot.

Eli Bush, Andrew Macdonald, Allon Reich and Scott Rudin will produce with shooting aiming to begin around the early Fall.

Despite the name similarity, this is NOT connected to the Brian K. Vaughan comic.
