The team has already enjoyed success in the indie-horror realm with Resolution (2012), Spring (2014), their V/H/S: Viral segment “Bonestorm” and this year’s The Endless.
Anthony Mackie (Captain America: Civil War) and Jamie Dornan (Fifty Shades of Grey) are in negotiations to star in Synchronic.
In a statement by Benson and Moorhead:
“Being huge fans of the nuanced, brilliant work of Anthony and Jamie, this is a filmmaker’s wildest dream come true. They each possess an extraordinary depth of personal experiences, humor, and pathos that brings a massive wellspring of humanity to the battle-scarred partnership being portrayed. We’ve found the perfect collaborators to tell a bold, frightening, heartstrings-tugging story.”
The film centers on, “a pair of New Orleans paramedics, whose lives are ripped apart after encountering a series of horrific deaths linked to a designer drug with bizarre, otherworldly effects.”
David Lawson Jr., producer of The Endless, is back to produce Synchronic alongside Benson and Moorhead for Rustic Films with a script by Benson.
