Meredith Baxter to Star in Dystopian Dramedy 'Genesis'
The feature directorial debut from editor Audrey Evans explores the extinction of the male species and the promise of an all-female society.
The future is indeed female in Genesis, a new sci-fi dramedy from Audrey Evans.
“Imagine an individual cloning herself — it’s sort of an immaculate conception, if you will,” explains Meredith Baxter in a clip of the dramedy, which explores the extinction of the male species and the promise of an all-female society.
Robert Romanus, Suzanne Westenhoefer and Dana Goldberg are also set to star in the film, which is described as “a B movie with style” and “Orange is the New Black meets Pulp Fiction meets Enter the Dragon.” It is currently raising funds on Indiegogo.
Evans — a seasoned editor who has worked on Thelma & Louise, Waterworld, What Women Want and the upcoming Battle of the Sexes with Emma Stone and Steve Carell — makes her feature directorial debut with the film, which she co-wrote with Adam Goldman after meeting with an expert in parthenogenesis (reproduction without fertilization).
Barbara Pollard is on board as an executive producer, with Staci Pontius as an associate producer. Production is set to begin next month in Los Angeles.
