Who knows what horrors are contained within the Earth. Unless you have one of those nifty Total Recall remake elevators, there’s just no way to know. Luckily for us monster movie fans, some poor souls are about to find out for themselves.
Screen Daily reports that AV Pictures’ Cannes slate includes in-demand sci-fi thriller Scintilla, which eOne has picked up for multiple territories. Billy O’Brien directs the story of a disparate group of mercenaries hired to a lead a special unit deep into a former Soviet state to retrieve data from an underground militia base.

The production designer is Skyfall and Prometheus art director Paul Inglis. AV has a promo in Cannes.
Also new to AV’s slate is horror Let Us Prey (previous story here), currently in pre-production. Liam Cunningham and Hanna Stanbridge are attached to the feature about an enigmatic stranger detained in a remote police station who gradually takes over the minds of inmates and staff.
