Bella Thornehas landed an uncannyproject…
The 22-year-old half-Cuban American actress/singer will star in director Mitzi Peirone’s post-apocalyptic thriller The Uncanny.
Written by Peirone and Chaya Doswell, The Uncanny presents a future where every citizen is implanted with a chip capable of controlling everything from emotions to directions, until a routine update backfires, causing a cyber apocalypse. Wiping out most of humanity, five strangers miraculously survive, now forced to live hidden in a bunker with their implants ripped from their spines. They were the few lucky enough to survive – until Scarlet (Thorne) begins to suspect they were not saved at all, or by chance.
“The story offers a timely and compelling glimpse into human’s dependence on technology and the greater evils of such addiction” says producer Courtney Shepard. “We’re excited to have Bella on board for such a strong female-led team. I have no doubt Mitzi will craft something visually and thematically stunning.”
Thorne was recently cast in the home invasion thriller Masquerade and she’s also making her feature directorial debut with an elevated thriller written by Zander Coté, the story of which is being kept under wraps.
