Kodi Smit-McPhee (ALPHA, X-MEN APOCALYPSE) and Ryan Kwanten (RED HILL, TRUE BLOOD) have signed on to star in “2067” - an elevated climate fiction movie telling the story of humanity’s last attempt at saving mankind. They join a stellar cast that includes THE SAPPHIRES’ Deborah Mailman, Sundance hit KILLING GROUND’S Aaron Glenane, Damian Walshe-Howling (MYSTERY ROAD, JANET KING), Leeanna Walsman (SAFE HARBOUR, STAR WARS: ATTACK OF THE CLONES), Finn Little (STORM BOY) and introduces two of Australia’s hottest new talents - Sana’a Shaik and Matt Testro.
Award-winning filmmaker Seth Larney (TOMBIRUO, HIPSTERS) is directing ‘2067’ from an original screenplay he wrote himself. Larney is well known for his successful career in digital management and effects on Hollywood blockbusters such as THE MATRIX RELOADED, STAR WARS: REVENGE OF THE SITH, SUPERMAN RETURNS, THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA and X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE, to name a few. Larney was just nominated for an Australian Academy of Cinema Arts and Television Award (AACTA) for TOMBIRUO.
Kew Media Distribution, part of Kew Media Group, is handling international sales (excluding Australia and New Zealand where Umbrella Entertainment has distribution rights) and introduced the newly cast project to distributors at the recent American Film Market (AFM). Shout! Studios has just acquired all North American rights to this movie for all rights distribution in the U.S. and Canada.
2067 is a new elevated sci-fi mystery thriller in the tradition of MOON, ARRIVAL and THE MACHINE. After years of doing too little to reverse climate change, humans are paying a terrible price – forests, plants, and wildlife are gone, and soon humans will be too. With no cure in sight, the only place humanity can look for help is to the future…
Producing the film are Lisa Shaunessy (Sundance Midnight Selection KILLING GROUND) through her Arcadia production banner, and Kate Croser of Kojo Entertainment.
