The Pact Star Joins The Machine

We had been tipped off a few weeks ago that Caity Lotz was going to star in the sci-fi thriller The Machine and, this morning, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed the actress’ involvement.  The outlet adds Toby Stephens has also been cast.  

Lotz most recently starred in The Pact, now available on VOD.  She also served as a guest on our video talk show Choice Cuts – you can watch the interview here.

Part sci-fi action thriller, part love story, The Machine is described as an intense futuristic twist to the classic horror of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.

Set in the near future and with the world plunged into another cold war, Britain’s Ministry of Defense is on the verge of developing a robotic soldier. This soldier, called The Machine, looks and sounds human, but has the strength, speed, and ruthlessness beyond that of any living person. The project is near completion when a bug in the programming, a side effect of it being too close to human coding, causes the prototype to destroy the lab and everyone in its path in spectacularly violent fashion. Undeterred by this setback, lead scientist Vincent McCarthy obsessively continues his work on The Machine in secret, away from the prying eyes of those who seek to destroy him.
