The first trailer for the sci-fi thriller ‘Replicas’ hit the web after its premiere at New York Comic-Con Thursday.
It appears Keanu Reeves’ character is headed to a dark place, as this film looks to challenge morals. Hopefully, the script and execution match expectations.
“It’s been a process I really love, developing an idea, a character, and a world. I love science fiction, I love the Trojan horse of it …all other genres can fit inside science fiction,” said Reeves at NYCC.
About the film:
In this sci-fi thriller, neuroscientist William Foster (Keanu Reeves) is on the verge of successfully transferring human consciousness into a computer when his family is tragically killed in a car crash. Desperate to resurrect them, William recruits fellow scientist Ed Whittle (Thomas Middleditch) to help him secretly clone their bodies and create replicas. But he soon faces a “Sophie’s choice” when it turns out that they can only bring three of the four family members back to life.
‘Replicas’ is directed by Jeffrey Nachmanoff, from Stephen Hamel’s story and Chad St. John’s screenplay. The film stars Keanu Reeves, Alice Eve, and Thomas Middleditch.
This film does not have a release date.
