NEON and Topic Studios have announced that Emmy winner Alexander Skarsgård (Big Little Lies, Godzilla Vs. Kong) will star in Brandon Cronenberg’s (Possessor, Antiviral) sci-fi thriller Infinity Pool. Skarsgård will further serve as executive producer on the project.
In the film, James and Em are young, rich, in love, and on vacation. Their all-inclusive resort boasts island tours and gleaming beaches. But outside of the hotel gates waits something much more dangerous and seductive, beyond the edge of paradise.
Principal photography is set to begin on September 6. NEON will co-finance and executive produce the sci-fi thriller alongside Topic Studios. Telefilm Canada and the Croatian Film Fund will also co-finance the production.
Karen Harnisch and Andrew Cividino of Film Forge, Noah Segal and Christina Piovesan of Elevation Pictures, and Rob Cotterill are producing, with Daniel Kresmery and Jonathan Halperyn co-producing for Hero Squared and Anita Juka for 4 Film. Tom Quinn, Jeff Deutchman, and Emily Thomas will serve as executive producers for NEON, Michael Bloom, Maria Zuckerman and Ryan Heller for Topic Studios, and Hengameh Panahi and Charlotte Mickie for Celluloid Dreams.
The film marks NEON’s latest collaboration with Cronenberg following the critically acclaimed sci-fi psychological horror Possessor. NEON and Topic Studios have also partnered on Pablo Larrain’s Spencer, starring Kristen Stewart at Princess Diana.
NEON will release Infinity Pool in the U.S. and Elevation Pictures will release the film in Canada.
