Ian Somerhalder (“The Vampire Diaries,” “LOST”) and Luke Hemsworth will topline the cast of The Anomaly, an action thriller exploring the issue of global terrorism. Noel Clarke’s UK production company Unstoppable Entertainment announced that principal photography has commenced on the new sci-fi thriller last week.
The Anomaly’s original screenplay was written by Simon Lewis and will be directed by Noel Clarke. Lewis’ screenplay follows the travails of a traumatized ex-soldier who wakes up in the back of a van, alongside a kidnapped boy, to find that he only has only nine minutes and 37 seconds of consciousness to work out why and how he got there.
The film is produced by James Harris and Mark Lane of The Tea Shop & Film Company. The film will be shooting on location across London and also stars Clarke, Brian Cox and Alexis Knapp.
