Stephan Zlotescu’s short film, True Skin, is planned for development into a feature. The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Warner Bros. has picked up the rights and attached Zlotescu to direct. The short, which you can check out in the player below, is officially described as follows:
“True Skin” is a sci-fi short set in the not too distant future where augmentation is the way of life. For Kaye, still a natural, augmenting will help him keep pace in this now hyper-paced world. However, after acquiring an off-market prototype, Kaye quickly finds himself fighting not only for his own humanity, but something much larger.
David Heyman (the Harry Potter franchise) will produce alongside Raymond Brothers, Scott Glassgold and the original short’s Chris Sewall. Jeffrey Clifford will serve as executive producer.
