It will be directed by Rob W. King, and will star Christina Ricci, John Cusack, and Brendan Fletcher.
“We are pleased to be working again with Mind’s Eye Entertainment who filmed The Humanity Bureau, starring Nicolas Cage, last November in Oliver/Osoyoos, and set up an Okanagan office last spring,” says Jon Summerland, Okanagan Film Commissioner. “They are bringing another full production to be shot in the Okanagan which is significant as the Okanagan is becoming more established as a full production film and television centre.”
Kevin DeWalt, Producer and CEO of Minds Eye Entertainment, says, “Christina, John and Brendan bring incredible talent to this project. We’re honored to work with such a high caliber of actors and can’t wait for fans to join our characters on this mind-bending story.”
DISTORTED stars Christina Ricci as Lauren Curran, an artist who suffers from bi-polar disorder and who is recovering from a devastating personal tragedy—the loss of a child. Plagued by disturbing memories and fears for her own safety, Lauren and her devoted husband Russel (Brendan Fletcher) decide to move from a perilous neighborhood, to the luxurious, safe and beautiful surroundings of The Pinnacle, an apartment building that boasts ultra modern design features and integrated security systems. But Lauren begins to suspect the building has a dark side to it. She seeks the help of Vernon Sarsfield (John Cusack), a phantom-like investigative journalist whose interest is cyber conspiracy. Together, they begin to suspect The Pinnacle’s mysterious owner may be using the building’s state-of-the-art control systems to subliminally subjugate its unsuspecting residents.
