Netflix is to release Federico D’Alessandro‘s sci-fi action-thriller Tau worldwide this June.
Maika Monroe (It Follows), Ed Skrein (Deadpool), and Gary Oldman (Darkest Hour) in the film that “follows a once street-smart grifter, Julia (Monroe) who is the latest victim kidnapped and held captive in a fatal experiment. The only thing standing in the way of her freedom is Tau, an advanced artificial intelligence developed by Alex (Skrein), her captor. Tau is armed with a battalion of drones that automate a futuristic smart house. Tau’s potential is only limited by his understanding of the world he exists in, but Tau is ready for more. Julia, showing resourcefulness and courage, must race against time to bridge the boundaries between man and machine, connect to Tau and win her freedom before she suffers the same fate as the previous subjects.”
Sharon D. Clarke and Ian Virgo co-star. Noga Landau penned the script for Tau, financed by Hercules Film Fund and Ken Kao’s Waypoint Entertainment under his first look deal with Addictive Pictures. David S. Goyer produced under the banner of Phantom Four along with Russell Ackerman and John Schoenfelder of Addictive Pictures. Rhea Films and Paris Kassidokostas Latsis produced. Terry Douglas, and Jean-Luc De Fanti serve as executive producers along with Ken Kao, Dan Kao, and Luc Etienne.
