Logan Marshall-Green, best known for his role in Ridley Scott’s ‘Prometheus’ and 2016’s ‘The Invitation‘, has been cast in the lead role in the upcoming sci-fi thriller ‘Stem’, written and directed by Leigh Whannel. You should recognize Whannel’s name, he is the co-creator of the ‘Insidious’ and ‘Saw’ franchises.
“The script is set in the near-future when technology controls nearly all aspects of life and centers on a technophobe (Marshall-Green) who sets out to avenge his wife’s murder and his own paralysis-causing injury with the help of an experimental computer chip implant called Stem.”
THR reports that Blumhouse is producing in association with Goalpost Pictures Australia. Jason Blum, Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, and Kylie du Fresne will also produce. The movie will begin filming in Whannel’s hometown of Melbourne, Australia this Spring. We will keep you posted as more cast members are announced.
