First-time writer-director Adam Stern’s sci-fi thriller Levels is set to begin filming in 2021 with Cara Gee (The Expanse) and Mpho Koaho (Falling Skies).
The film begins after Joe (Koaho) witnesses the murder of his girlfriend (Gee) and risks everything – including reality itself – to discover the truth about her death.
Levels will be produced by Stern and Tony Wosk (Sorry For Your Loss).
Wosk said: “Adam shows a unique talent for storytelling within the genre, including strong character work with his actors, compelling visuals, and the ability to produce visual effects-heavy content on a fraction of the cost of studio tentpole movies. Levels is… the perfect feature debut for this talented filmmaker.”
Stern adds: “I’m insanely excited to work with Mpho and Cara on Levels. I’m a big fan of Mpho’s from both Dirk Gently and Falling Skies – he has a unique take on Joe and brings so much to the table. Cara’s phenomenal work as Drummer on The Expanse consistently blows me away, a combination of elegance and ferocity that’s perfect for Aislinn. I can’t wait to see them breathe life into these roles.”
Unreal Engine will be a key technological component for the film, from prep through post-production. Additional casting is underway. Stay tuned for updates.
