A cyberpunk heist film with real independent references? Add a fun set and The dresden sun promises to be a project to keep on your radar.
Christina Ricci, Mena Suvari and Stephen Ogg all signed up alongside Samantha Win for the up-and-coming cyberpunk heist film, The Dresden sun. The film will mark the debut of director Michel Ryan, who also wrote the project.
Video game fans may know Ogg best for his motion capture work playing and voicing Trevor Philips, the beloved but deranged psychopath from Grand Theft Auto V. Win most recently appeared in Zack Snyder’s Army of the dead while Ricci and Suvari need not be introduced.
The plot of the film is said to pick up “as a heist heads south when Crilenger (Ogg) – a brilliant principled mercenary with a traumatic past – works with an insider to steal a valuable asset from Peredor Corporation called” the sphere “. The C & Earth company, vying for world domination, seeks to find a solution to a technology from another world through the project of a scientist. Meanwhile, a financial analyst, who despises his job at powerful investment firm Mutual One, finds himself caught between deadly rival firms, financial fraud and tech espionage, and is ultimately forced to flee a psychopathic military contractor. .
We don’t know much else The dresden sun for the moment, apart from the production company and the distributors involved, respectively Archetype Pictures and High Octane Pictures. In the sci-fi genre, there aren’t enough cyberpunk movies on screen, so we can’t wait to see this one when it does eventually show up. We’ll tell you more as we hear it.
