Alice Braga is ready to share, and share alike…
The 38-year-old Brazilian actress and producer will star in Share, an innovative sci-fi film from The Traveling Picture Show Company, Wavemaker Creative and award-winning commercial director Ira Rosensweig.
Braga will star opposite Melvin Gregg, Bradley Whitford and Danielle Campbell in the film.
Scripted by Benjamin Sutor, Rosensweig’s debut feature follows a man who awakens to find himself stripped of all his possessions, and trapped in a bare room. Aided by a primitive computer, he must learn to survive in his new isolated existence where entertainment is the only currency.
While the actors’ roles have not been disclosed, the indie will reportedly be brought to life using “unique and immersive” filmmaking techniques. Given that each character in the story is physically isolated, the shoot (which is currently underway) called for the construction of multiple identical sets with integrated camera systems, teleprompters, and live event technology.
The system designed for the project allows the actors to fully interact both with each other and the computer interface central to the story in real time, while giving the director and crew a precise pre-visualization of the finished product.
Braga recently lent her voice to Oscar-winning Pixar feature, Soul. On the television side, the actress currently stars in USA Network’s drama, Queen of the South.
She also recently appeared in the HBO series We Are Who We Are, from Luca Guadagnino.
Up next, she’ll appear opposite Margot Robbie, Idris Elba and Viola Davis in James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad.
