Division 19, a dystopian science fiction thriller from writer-director Suzie Halewood (Bigga Than Ben), has started production in Detroit this week, Screen Daily reports. The cast includes Neve Campbell (Scream), Jamie Draven (Billy Elliot) and Clarke Peters ("The Wire").

Launched as a Kickstarter late last month, Division 19 is officially described as follows:

Division 19 is set in a future where the burgeoning need for social control has led to mass-criminalization. With jails overflowing, the Central Control have brought in a data-warehousing specialist who has turned the jails into online portals allowing citizens to monitor felons and vote on what they eat, wear, read, watch and when they fight.  
By far the most popular and downloaded felon is Hardin Jones - used 24/7 to sell everything from jeans to beans.

When Jones escapes, he wants just one thing: His anonymity. But a group of crypto-anarchists who have taken on the State need his influence to help their cause. Hardin isn't interested. He just wants off the radar. Until he finds out the architect of the prison complex is planning on rolling out Panopticon TV out to a whole new town. And the first resident of this new experiment town, will be Hardin's brother Nash.


Diane Kasperowicz and David Mutch are executive producing. You can check out the film's Kickstarter teaser in the player below:
