Scorpio Film Releasing, New England’s most prolific feature film production company, has announced the wrap of production on its 14th feature film, Future Justice. Read on for details and to see the first set of stills from the film.
From the Press Release:
Future Justice is Scorpio Film Releasing’s most ambitious project to date: a sci-fi, post-apocalyptic action film from director Richard Griffin (The Disco Exorcist), writer Nat Sylva, and producer Ted Marr (Exhumed).
“The production of Future Justice, considering the large scope of the project in terms of special effects, stunts, make-up effects, and sets and costumes, was something that a typical indie film would never attempt,” explained director Griffin. “But due to the extremely hard work and talent of the cast and crew, not only did we wrap production on budget, but we did so two days ahead of schedule. That’s unheard of even on films with a much larger budget and a great testament to all involved.”
Future Justice is set in a time when Saturn’s moon of Titan houses a prison where Earth’s worst criminals are kept awaiting their return to Earth for trial and execution. One of those criminals, Python Diamond, is being flown back to Earth, escorted by five members of the military police. Upon their return to Earth, they find that a cataclysmic nuclear war has reduced the world to a near-lifeless husk. Searching for survivors and any clue as to the cause of the destruction leads the six to a warehouse bunker housing scientists who constitute Earth’s last remaining hope for the future. Unfortunately, their landing spacecraft drew the attention of one of the gangs that roam the ruined countryside in search of food and resources, leading them straight to the carefully hidden and well-provisioned shelter. The gang lays siege to the warehouse, fighting their way inside in a bloody battle that takes lives on both sides.
Throughout the 14-day production, a creative team led by director Richard Griffin, director of photography Jill Poisson, and production designer Margaret Wolf transformed various locations and sets around Rhode Island into a post-apocalyptic nightmare. Future Justice stars Aaron Andrade, Steven O’Broin, Elyssa Baldassari, Anna Rizzo, Tiffany Lee Edwards, and Nat Sylva as Python Diamond.
Future Justice will be released around April 2014.
