Queensbury Pictures announced today the filming has begun in Chicago on Jacob Gentry‘s sci-fi horror Broadcast Signal Intrusion.
Starring Harry Shum Jr. (Crazy Rich Asians, Glee), Kelley Mack (The Walking Dead) and Chris Sullivan (This Is Us, I Trapped the Devil) the film is a technological thriller inspired by actual broadcast interruptions that occurred in the Windy City in the late 1980s, and remain unsolved to this day. The film an unsettling journey into our collective technological nightmares, confronting our deepest, darkest fears of both man and machine.
Shum has been cast in the lead role as James. While logging tapes of decades-old TV broadcasts, video archivist James (Harry Shum Jr.) comes across a surreal and disturbing clip of what appears to be an imprisoned android. James believes it’s the product of a mysterious broadcast signal hacking, and his discovery takes a sinister turn when he tracks down similar broadcast intrusions that send him on an obsessive mission. Now James must confront two very real possibilities: that the videos may be clues to a crime beyond all comprehension; and that whoever was behind them may be very aware that James is coming uncomfortably close to the truth.
Harry Shum Jr. recently starred in the award-winning smash-hit Crazy Rich Asians as well as the acclaimed series Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments, for which he won a People’s Choice Award, and his six-season run on “Glee,” for which he won a Screen Actors Guild Award. Shum Jr. is represented by Paradigm, Triniti Management and Stone, Genow, Smelkinson, Binder & Christopher, LLP.
Gentry has made an impressive range of films and TV movies, including the award-winning romantic mystery Synchronicity, the sci-fi thriller Night Sky, the My Super Psycho Sweet 16 trilogy and the technological thriller The Signal.
Greg Newman, Nicola Goelzhaeuser, Giles Edwards and Brett Hays are producing for Queensbury. Harry Shum Jr. is executive producing.
