Hey guys, Jana here,
Director Greg McLean (‘Wolf Creek‘, ‘Rogue‘) has taken a script from ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘ writer director James Gunn and worked with a crew, including a few of Gunn-faithfuls to bring ‘The Belko Experiment‘ to life.
Synopsis: It at first seems to be an ordinary morning on the job for a group of Americans working for a not-for-profit in a modern office building in Colombia. After noticing that their Colombian colleagues have not arrived for work, office worker Mike spots some unfamiliar security guards entering a large hangar nearby. Moments later, an icy voice comes over the building’s PA system and calmly explains that the employees must kill a certain number of their co-workers — if not, they will be killed themselves. While the boss tries to calm the troops, Mike belatedly realizes that something truly sinister is going on — and when metal doors come sliding down on all the building’s exits and windows, it becomes clear that friends and colleagues are now suddenly enemies in a bloody and brutal battle to the death.
The talent you’ll see on screen is pretty amazing on their own, put them together and this has to be a juggernaut. We’ve got John Gallager Jr., from ‘10 Cloverfield Lane‘, Tony Goldwyn from ‘Scandal‘, one of my favorites John C. McGinley (‘Scrubs‘ and ‘Platoon‘ anyone?). We can’t forget the Gunn-faithfuls in Michael Rooker, Sean Gunn and Gregg Henry, all featured in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘. The project debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival to less than unanimous reviews, so check it out for yourself when it bows March 17, 2017.
We’ve got a teaser to share before the full trailer is released on November 30. What do you think of it?
