'Mr. Robot' Actor to Star in Sci-Fi Thriller 'Parallel' (Exclusive)
Martin Wallstrom, one of the stars of USA's Mr. Robot, has signed on to star in Parallel, a sci-fi indie from Bron Media Corp subsidiary The Realm and Bellevue Productions.
Isaac Ezban is directing the feature, which follows four young app entrepreneurs who discover a mirror in the attic of their rental house that's a portal to parallel universes, with a time differential that makes it possible for them to access the future of these alternate worlds and bring it back home.
Wallstrom will play the leader of the group, who uses the time warp to make a fortune off of tech that doesn’t yet exist in their present world.
Scott Blaszak wrote the script. John Zaozirny, Garrick Dion and Matthias Mellinghaus are producing Aaron Gilbert is executive producing the pic.
The Swedish-born Wallstrom plays the conflicted bad guy Tyrell Wellick on Mr. Robot, currently one of TV’s cult hits. The actor recently wrapped production on the Soviet drama Ashes in the Snow with Bel Powley.
Wallstrom is repped by UTA, Principato Young, Agent Firman (Sweden) and Gang Tyre.
