Jasmin Savoy Brown Takes The Lead in Bloody Thriller CONDUCTOR

Prolific producer Alex Noyer (808, New York Influence City) has announced his feature-length directorial debut, a thriller adaptation of his genre short Conductor, to be filmed in Los Angeles starring Jasmin Savoy Brown, Lili Simmons and James Jagger.

Dread central called the short “gruesome yet awesome”, so we’re definitely excited to see how the feature film develops.

Jasmin Savoy Brown (The Leftovers, For the People) has been tapped to star as Alexis, a musician who developed a rare condition that allows her to experience music audio-visually. As her most intense experiences come from human harm, her artistic collaborators unwittingly become her victims. 

Lili Simmons (Ray Donovan, Banshee) has been tapped to play Marie, Alexis’ outgoing roommate with a heart of gold.

Newcomer James Jagger (Vinyl) rounds out the lead cast as Duke, a free-spirited musician. He’s drawn to Marie, but can’t get a read on the mysterious Alexis.

Conductor follows Alexis (Brown), a formerly deaf woman who recovered her hearing and gained synesthetic abilities after witnessing the brutal murder of her family when she was a child.  Finding solace in the sounds of bodily harm, she pursues a career in music, composing her masterpiece through gruesome murders.  She is supported by her loving roommate Marie (Simmons), who is blissfully unaware of the part she plays in Alexis’ work.  Faced with the possibility of losing her hearing again, Alexis relentlessly pursues her masterpiece through gruesome sound experiments on human flesh.

Hannu Aukia (Someone SomewhereMy Brother’s Keeper) is producing alongside Noyer, with well-known executive producer Mike Macari (Netflix’s upcoming FracturedThe Ring) jumping on board. Renowned Finnish music producer Jaakko Manninen takes on the score alongside Alexander Burke. Most recently, Noyer’s film 808, was the first documentary to be released on Apple Music.
