Well into her third feature film, writer and director Suzie Halewood is coming in strong and decorated for her new upcoming release, Division 19. The new sci-fi action thriller won the Critics’ Award at Fantasporto and at the Boston Science Fiction Film Fest for Best Director, and now, Uncork’d Entertainment is snagging it for a select theatrical and VoD rollout on April 5, which is already loading up to be quite the moviegoing weekend.
In the future, prisons have been turned into online portals where paying subscribers get to vote on what felons eat, watch, wear and who they fight. Panopticon TV is so successful it is about to be rolled out to a whole new town. When the world’s most downloaded felon escapes, the authorities set a trap to reel him in. The bait is his little brother who has so far managed to avoid detection.
Starring are Linus Roache (Mandy) and Alison Doody (from Indiana Jones and the last Crusade), along with Jamie Draven (Billy Elliot), Lotte Verbeek (Outlander), Clarke Peters (Jessica Jones), L. Scott Caldwell (Lost) and Will Rothhaar (Grimm).
