Alba Flores has an ulterior motive…
The 36-year-old Spanish actress and Money Heist star will star in and executive-produce Ulterior, a sci-fi thriller film from Matt Brodlie and Jonathan Kier’s Upgrade Productions and Spain’s Morena Films.
Created by Money Heist director Alex Rodrigo and Vida Perfecta’s Manuel Burque, the film follows a young singer and influencer who wakes up in a life that she does not recognize in a world where humans are given the opportunity to virtually connect to a simulation of their own lives. Protagonist Ada must play along with the game in order to return to her real life and, with the help of a mysterious stranger, unravel the puzzle of her new existence.
Flores is best known for playing Nairobi in Netflix Spanish smash hit Money Heist. No broadcaster is attached as of yet.
Brodlie and Kier called Ulterior a “chilling and complex science fiction story,” adding: “Manuel Burque and Alex Rodrigo have crafted a visionary and timely thriller and we’re excited to bring their distinct and authentic voices forward.”
