The chilling psychological thriller Dark State from writer-director Tracy Lucca (The Finders), is headed your way this March from Atlas Distribution Company and Lucca Films in association with Creative Partners International & Realize Studios.
In the film, “Katie Marro is on the verge of becoming a movie star when her plans are brutally interrupted. While driving home to her small hometown, she is involved in a fatal car crash in which she is the only survivor. Alicia Gazzara, a local reporter at the Hammonton Herald, begins to write an article about the accident and the deceased passengers: a retired Army intelligence officer, an heir to a pharmaceutical fortune, and a self-confessed serial killer. As Alicia begins to investigate why these seemingly unconnected people would be together in the same car, a complicated picture begins to emerge. Eventually, Alicia uncovers connections deeper and more sinister than anyone in her small town could imagine. When events begin to turn deadly, Alicia must choose between helping Katie expose the truth or accepting the possibility that the world is ruled by a global network of ruthless insiders that is determined to wield power over all of mankind in a coming Dark State.”
The cast includes Constantine Maroulis (“American Idol, “ Rock of Ages), Nicholas Baroudi (Fosse/Verdon, “Person of Interest”), Katie Stahl (Under the Flowers, The Finders), Melissa Connell (Under the Flowers: Circle of Hell, Control), Greg Wood (The Sixth Sense, Signs), Antoni Corone (Bad Boys II, We Own the Night), Jared Delaney (The Story of Penny), Kim Carson (The Finders), Ariana Ballerini (Harry Godfather, 7th Secret), and K.
