Here’s an absolutely wild concept that’s being brought to life by producer Timur Bekmambetov as part of his ongoing “Screenlife” series, which includes the excellent trio of films Searching, Unfriended, and Profile.
“Resurrected is set in a dystopian future, where the Vatican has discovered how to resurrect people.”
“Dave Davis (pictured in The Vigil, “True Detective”) stars as Stanley, an ordinary man who became a priest following a personal tragedy and discovers a series of random murders committed by resurrected people. Stanley starts to investigate the crimes and unveils a conspiracy built around the resurrection process that soon threatens his life and the life of his young son, Nicholas.”
Variety reports that up-and-coming Russian filmmaker Egor Baranov (Gogol, Netflix’s “Sparta” series) is directing Resurrected.
