THE ENDLESS Filmmakers Benson & Moorhead’s Next Project Announced: Sci-fi Horror SYNCHRONIC

They confounded us with Resolution in 2012, made us believe in love in 2014’s Spring, and (most recently) blew our collective minds with The Endless. Now, we’re getting news on the next project from indie legends Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, a sci-fi thriller dubbed Synchronic! Deadline broke the news:

Captain America: Civil War star Anthony Mackie and A Private War star Jamie Dornan are in talks to topline sci-fi thriller Synchronic from The Endless directors Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead. The pair will play two New Orleans paramedics, whose lives are ripped apart after encountering a series of horrific deaths linked to a designer drug with bizarre, otherworldly effects.

It’ll be interesting to see how (or if) Synchronic ties into the shared universe established in Benson and Moorhead’s past films. Perhaps the designer drug mentioned by Deadline is a derivative of the bizarre red marijuana seen in Resolution and The Endless. Time will tell.

If you missed The Endless, a definite contender for best horror movie of 2017, give the synopsis and trailer a look-see below. Of course, we’ll bring you updates on Synchronic as additional details emerge. Stay tuned!

Two brothers receive a cryptic video message inspiring them to revisit the UFO death cult they escaped a decade earlier. Hoping to find the closure that they couldn’t find as young men, they’re forced to reconsider the cult’s beliefs when confronted with unexplainable phenomena surrounding the camp. As the members prepare for the coming of a mysterious event, the brothers race to unravel the seemingly impossible truth before their lives become permanently entangled with the cult.
