Diego Velasco is Millennium Films’ latest victim…
Millennium Films has acquired the time-travel thriller Victim 321 that will be directed by the Venezuelan-American’s thriller The Zero Hour (La hora cero).
It’ll be Velasco’s first English-language full-length feature film.
Scripted by The Following writer Michael McGrale, Victim 321 tells the story of a jaded Chicago homicide detective who wakes up in the body of an ex-con three days before his murder. He has 72 hours to unravel the conspiracy behind the victim’s death, or he’ll meet his own demise.
Avi Lerner, Trevor Short, Boaz Davidson, John Thompson, Mark Gill, Vincent Cheng and Beth Bruckner O’Brien will be exec producers on Victim 321.
“This is the perfect match of a compelling high-concept script with a memorable character journey and a blow-out good director in Diego Velasco,” Gill said. “His movie The Zero Hour is probably the least well-known great film of the last five years.”
Velasco’s other credits include directing episodes of the television series Cybergeddon.
