Leigh Whannell’s name should sound familiar, he’s the writer behind Saw and Dead Silence. He also wrote and co-starred in the Insidious franchise. Now, Whannell’s latest film, titled Upgrade, which he both wrote and directed, has a release date.
Upgrade “centers on Grey Trace, a technophobe in a utopian near-future when computers control nearly everything – from cars to crime-surveillance – who is paralyzed in a freak mugging. But when a billionaire technologist offers him an experimental paralysis cure – an implanted computer chip called STEM – Grey finds that the chip has a voice and a mind of its own.”
Logan Marshall-Green (Prometheus), Betty Gabriel (Get Out), Harrison Gilbertson (Hounds of Love), Simon Maiden (Killer Elite), and Benedict Hardie (Hacksaw Ridge) star. Jason Blum, Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, Kylie du Fresne, Goalpost Pictures, and Automatik Entertainment are producing. Charles Layton, Rosemary Blight, and Ben Grant serve as executive producers.
Upgrade, from Blumhouse Productions and NEON, will be out on June 1, 2018, via OTL Releasing.
