Neil Johnson is set to direct Evolution War, a “Terminator”, headlined by award-winning actress Tracey Birdsall.
Birdsall is fresh from the award-winning Sony release “Rogue Warrior: Robot Fighter” and newly-released rom-com “Who’s Jenna…?”. In Evolution War, she plays Angel-D, a hero of the great machine war who returns to Earth to discover a terrible plague has wiped out humanity.
The film reunites Birdsall & Johnson, who have collaborated together on several films, including the upcoming The Time War.
Currently shooting, Evolution War is described as a mix of Terminator and Pacific Rim, a science fiction film which sees the hero forced to build an army of robots to battle an army of mysterious creatures that are taking over the surface of the Earth.
The film also features Marilyn Gigliotti (“Clerks’’), Brooke Lewis (‘’Starship: Rising’’), and Tony Gibbons (who voiced Hoagland in Johnson’s Rogue Warrior: Robot Fighter).
Evolution War is expected to see a Summer release.
