Jaime Dornan and Anthony Mackie are in talks to star in sci-fi thriller Synchronic
Dorna and Mackie will play two New Orleans paramedics, whose lives are ripped apart after encountering a series of horrific deaths linked to a designer drug with bizarre, otherworldly effects.
Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead will direct, continuing a partnership that includes Resolution and Spring. Benson wrote the script with David Lawson Jr. producing.
Benson and Moorhead said, “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.”
