Anthony Mackie and Jamie Dornan are in talks to star in the upcoming sci-fi thriller Synchronic from Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead. As a rabid fan of Benson and Moorhead’s entire filmography (Resolution, Spring, The Endless), I couldn’t be more excited about the announcement of their next film, which involves Mackie and Dornan as two paramedics who are forced to deal with a series of horrific deaths revolving around a designer drug that has otherworldly effects.
Here’s what they said in the release:
“Being huge fans of the nuanced, brilliant work of Anthony and Jamie, this is a filmmaker’s wildest dream come true. They each possess an extraordinary depth of personal experiences, humor, and pathos that brings a massive wellspring of humanity to the battle-scarred partnership being portrayed. We’ve found the perfect collaborators to tell a bold, frightening, heartstring-tugging story.”
