Sci-fi short Miles gets feature film from Open Road & David Goyer
Lakeshore Entertainment and Open Road Films are partnering to co-produce and co-finance Miles, the feature film to be directed by Oliver Daly, based on his original short which started a bidding war amongst producers last year. It was won by David S. Goyer and his Phantom Four Films, who then developed the script with Daly. Check out the original short below!
Miles is the story of a teenage boy whose life is forever altered by a chance encounter with cutting edge military technology. 18-year-old Miles is searching for a way out of his small California town. But when he stumbles upon M.A.X., an escaped prototype of an advanced robot, he finds himself in an unlikely friendship, and the target of a massive manhunt that puts him and everyone he cares about in danger. Miles is a movie about growing up, finding first love, and what lies beyond the boundaries of humanity and technology.
“’Miles’ is a wildly innovative project with a top notch filmmaking team behind it. We are thrilled to partner with Lakeshore, David Goyer and everyone at Phantom Four to bring this movie to audiences around the country,” stated Open Road Films CEO, Tom Ortenberg.
The film will be produced by Lakeshore’s Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi with Phantom Four’s David S. Goyer and Kevin Turen. Miles is currently casting with principal photography to begin late summer for an anticipated 2017 release.
