Escape From Ensenada helmer Brandon Slagle’s latest sci-fi thriller, Crossbreed, has a trailer and several images circulating as of last week. The film appears to be getting a 2018 release hailing a cast that enlists actress Devanny Pinn as the titular alien biological weapon seen as the latest central threat to mankind thanks in part to some skullduggery on the count of corrupt humans. Plot twists and such!
In the near future, the President of the New United States of America hires a team of military veterans to retrieve a biological alien weapon from a top secret research facility orbiting the Earth. The mission goes awry when it is revealed that the facility is being maintained by a double agent with allegiance both to the President as well as alien arms dealers.
Facing an immeasurable task, team leader Adam “Boss” Ryker must face not only the heavily-armed personnel guarding the facility, but also the alien biological weapon itself…
Stink Fisher and Daniel Baldwin also star among the cast with actress Vivica A. Fox portraying the film’s designated commander-in-chief of the U.S. – also a first in the history of cinema.
The trailer itself speaks to fans of low-budget sci-fi with certain set pieces and low lighting playing intergrally well into some of the intensity of the action and scenic visuals being sampled. It’s a mildly exciting sell and I’m albeit curious about what the film will entail in whole by next year.
Alas, the rest is history from here on so take a look below at what’s to come.
