Sci-Fi Thriller Branded Coming in September
Roadside Attractions has picked up Branded, the sci-fi thriller from writer/directors Jamie Bradshaw and Alexander Doulerain. Ed Stoppard, Leelee Sobieski, Jeffrey Tambor, Ingeborga Dabkunaite and Max Von Sydow star in the film, and Roadside’s aiming for a September 2012 release in theaters.
Commenting on the acquistion, Roadside Co-President Howard Cohen stated, “We’re excited to release Jamie Bradshaw and Alexander Doulerain’s mind-bending, futuristic thriller Branded, which is a kind of film we haven’t done before.”
Branded is a dark and mind-bending journey into a surreal, dystopian society where corporate brands have unleashed a monstrous global conspiracy to get inside our minds and keep the population disillusioned, dependent and passive. One man’s Misha (Ed Stoppard) passion to unlock the truth behind the conspiracy will lead to an epic battle with the hidden forces that really control our world.
“The most powerful weapon on earth today is not a gun or a disease, nor is it even visible to many. It is Marketing. Marketing is the power to control your desires and change your mind, and if you look closer there is something about it that is not of this earth,” said writer/director/producer Alexander.
