The production has brought on board Betty Gabriel as the female lead opposite Logan Marshall-Green in the sci-fi thriller from writer-director Leigh Whannell, the co-creator of the Saw and Insidious horror franchises.
The script is set in a near-future when technology controls nearly all aspects of life and centers on a technophobe (Marshall-Green) who avenges his wife’s murder and his own paralysis-causing injury with the help of an experimental computer-chip implant called Stem.
Gabriel’s role is being kept secret.
Goalpost Pictures and Blumhouse Productions are the companies behind the project, with Blum, Kylie du Fresne and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones acting as producers.
Gabriel is quickly becoming a featured Blumhouse player. Stem reunites the actress with the company for whom she starred in 2016 thriller The Purge: Election Year, and she will next be seen in Get Out, Blumhouse’s horror-thriller from Jordan Peele, which is set to open Feb. 24.
Gabriel is repped by Greene & Associates and Generate.
