LIFE ON MARS HAS EVERYTHING YOU NEED - EXCEPT PEACE OF MIND
SOFIA BOUTELLA, JONNY LEE MILLER AND NELL TIGER FREE STAR IN SCI-FI THRILLER SETTLERS
Vertigo Releasing has announced that Wyatt Rockefeller’s stunning debut SETTLERS is being released on digital platforms July 30th.
A Quiet Place meets The Martian in the dazzling sci-fi thriller SETTLERS, the story of a family who have made their home in a barren wilderness on Mars, only to have it torn apart when a dangerous stranger intrudes into their compound.
The fantastic cast includes Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service, Star Trek Beyond) and Jonny Lee Miller (Elementary, Trainspotting) as the heads of the struggling family. Nell Tiger Free (Game of Thrones), Ismael Cruz Cordova (The Undoing), and award-winner Brooklynn Prince, the talented star of The Florida Project, also star.
Set to a superb score by acclaimed musician Nitin Sawhney (Mowgli, Midnight’s Children), SETTLERS is a visually striking, wildly original and pulse-quickening tale of survival and redemption, which also explores pertinent issues such as immigration and isolation.
SETTLERS is London-based writer/director Wyatt Rockefeller’s first feature. He received a dual MBA-MFA in film at NYU and has written, directed, and produced numerous short films, commercials, and documentaries. SETTLERS is among the NYU Production Lab's slate of supported projects.
Synopsis: Following an ecological disaster on Earth, a family eke out an existence on a desolate Martian homestead. Reza (Jonny Lee Miller) and his wife Ilsa (Sofia Boutella), do their best to protect nine-year-old daughter Remmy (Brooklynn Prince) from the dangers of the surrounding landscape. But when hostile outsiders appear in the nearby hills, Remmy becomes aware of the disturbing reality of her situation, that her parents have shielded her from all this time. She is taken hostage by the outsider, Jerry (Ismael Cruz Córdova), and as time goes by, the probability of escape for Remmy (now played by Nell Tiger Free) grows increasingly remote, while Jerry’s intentions grow more and more sinister.
SETTLERS WILL BE RELEASED ON DIGITAL PLATFORMS JULY 30TH
