The next great action star could be coming our way...
...Via THR, Olivia Munn (X-Men: Apocalypse) has been cast to star in director Jimmy Loweree's new action-packed sci-fi thriller Replay for The Exchange and Dark Castle Entertainment (which has brought a ton of great genre films our way, including the House on Haunted Hill remake). The film is described as being in the vein of John Wick and The Raid in terms of its close-quarters combat.
"Erin Staffer (Munn), whose husband is kidnapped and murdered. Now, armed only with illegal, bleeding edge tech and a desperate plan, Erin must do everything in her power to change the past and save him."
Ethan Erwin of Dark Castle told the site, "Audiences are going to witness the birth of the next great action star with Olivia Munn in this film. And our director, Jimmy Loweree, is an incredible young filmmaker, whose vision for this movie is going to blow people away."
The film is produced by Munn alongside Ethan Erwin and Hal Sadoff of Dark Castle Entertainment. Robert Bell of Dark Castle is co-producing.
Replay will be showcased on the agency platform during the Cannes virtual market, with The Exchange shopping the film.
