RESTORATION: New Images, Casting News for Stuart Willis Sci-Fi Film
We've been tracking the progress of the science-fiction project Restoration for a while now and the latest word is very positive indeed.
Directed by Stuart Willis and produced by Toby Gibson, the film is "set in a near-future world where humans have their memories downloaded for backup," according to the official synopsis. "It tells the story of a man, Oliver Klein (Grant Cartwright), who awakes with his memories restored into a body that is not his own." Our insider has seen the current cut and reports that it is, in a word, "GREAT."
Since we last reported on the project, Craig McLachlan (The Doctor Blake Mysteries) joined the cast, playing the role of Andrew Majury, CEO of a high profile law firm and a charismatic powerbroker. He rounds out the ensemble cast, featuring Nadia Townsend (Knowing, City Homicide), Grant Cartwright (MTC's The Crucible), Stephen Carracher (Vanished), Rosie Lourde (Felony), Elizabeth Nabben (Childhood's End) and Ailis Logan.
Additional filming to expand on the characters and the world recently took place at Melbourne's Florey Institute of Neuroscience & Mental Health. Restoration is currently in post-production, eyeing a release later this year or in early 2016.
We also have two new photos, which you can check out below.
