Bella Thorne has been cast to star in post-apocalyptic thriller ‘The Uncanny.’
Mitzi Peirone is attached to direct and write the screenplay, Chaya Doswell is also collaborating to co-write the script.
The Uncanny presents a future where every citizen is implanted with a chip capable of controlling everything from emotions to directions, until a routine update backfires, causing a cyber apocalypse. Wiping out most of humanity, five strangers miraculously survive, now forced to live hidden in a bunker with their implants ripped from their spines. They were the few lucky enough to survive – until Scarlet (Thorne) begins to suspect they were not saved at all, or by chance.
