|The production company behind the commercial hit Act of Valor have released a teaser trailer for their sci-fi offering, The Prototype.|
The story follows a humanoid robot (or a roboticized human) from a government program that goes rogue. As is the case when your superhuman test subjects break free, anything goes in the attempt to bring them down, regardless of how much money you pumped into their creation. The Prototype, written and directed by Bandito Brothers’ Andrew Will, stars Neal McDonough (Captain America: The First Avenger), Joseph Mawle (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) and Anna Anissimova.
Interestingly, the teaser mentions Dr. Kurzweil and The Singularity as sources of inspiration for the movie's inventor character.
The Bandito Brothers and Cantina Creative will be auctioning the project for studio support. And with the buzz being generated by the impressive production quality, it’s possible that a deal could be made before the Fourth of July holiday weekend (which is, ironically, when the trailer was originally supposed to be revealed).
