Fans of Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead rejoice; the duo have a new sci-fi thriller in the works. Synchronic stars Anthony Mackie (Captain America: Civil War) and Jamie Dornan (Fifty Shades of Grey), and has just had its first image shared by Entertainment Weekly.
Synchronic follows 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.
Back in 2018, Moorhead shared a video on Instagram of a trek through an abandoned amusement park on a location scouting mission. Judging by that ferris wheel in the background of the image, it looks like they found their spot.
Benson and Moorhead have caught the attention of critics and genre fans alike with their impressive catalogue of work. From their first foray into feature films, Resolution, to their V/H/S Viral segment, Bonestorm, the Lovecraftian love story, Spring, and more recently, the more-than-meets-the-eye mind-bender, The Endless, Benson and Moorhead have taken a very hands-on approach to their films, often serving as director, producer, writer, editor, and cinematographer. The end result is a truly unique cinematic voice, and it’s certainly one to follow. We can’t wait to see what’s next.
