Vice, which has been described as having a Westworld-meets-Grand Theft Auto vibe, is set on a resort in the future where the staff are lifelike synthetic beings and the rich can live out their darkest fantasies. The pseudo-paradise has an anything goes policy since the memories of the androids reset every night. One female staffer, however, suffers a glitch and is flooded with all her memories. Realizing the horror she has been made to suffer, she vows revenge.
Emmet/Furla sees the project as an action thriller and hopes to put a director on it soon.
Fabrizio and Passmore wrote San Andreas, New Line's earthquake disaster movie that will shoot later this year with Dwayne Johnson starring. Prince, meanwhile, also has John Cusack, Jason Patric and Jessica Lowndes in its cast. The pair are now writing Ride for Fox and Vince Vaughn.
Fabrizio and Passmore are repped by Paradigm, Aperture and Robert Szymanski of Eclipse Law.
