Kyra Sedgwick (TNT’s “The Closer”) and Michael C. Hall (Showtime’s “Dexter”) have joined Gerard Butler (300) in Lakeshore Entertainment’s Game, written and to be directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor.
The high-concept thriller takes place in the near future, when mind-control technology has taken society by storm. In this dystopian world, the ultimate online simulation environment is humans remote-controlling other humans in mass-scale, multiplayer online gaming.
Butler plays Kable, the No. 1-ranked warrior in the highest-rated game, called “Slayers.” With his every move tracked by millions, Kable’s ultimate challenge is to regain his identity and bring down the system that has imprisoned him.
Game marks the third time Lakeshore has teamed with Neveldine and Taylor, who together wrote and directed Crank. Filming will begin in January.
