We first really found out about ‘Voyagers‘ a couple of months back when Colin Farrell was tasked to lead the cast for the film and now it has officially has a distribution. Lionsgate will be bringing the film to the United States which also stars the likes of Tye Sheridan and Lily-Rose Depp.
The initial details which we had from the film share are below:
30 children who are sent on a multi-generational mission to populate a new planet. After the captain of the mission is killed in mysterious circumstances, the young crew descends into chaos, aligning themselves into tribes as they surrender to their most feral impulses.
It sounds like a bit of a high concept film depending on which direction they go with and I’m curious to see it come together. The movie will be produced by Basil Iwanyk’s Thunder Road.
With Lionsgate now involved, Jason Constantine, Lionsgate President of Acquisitions and Co-Productions has shared:
“Acquiring U.S. rights to Voyagers was an easy decision for us. We have worked with Neil Burger very successfully and he will without a doubt create an experience with Voyagers as a sophisticated and stylish event sci-fi thriller. Paired with the amazing producing team behind John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, and this outstanding cast of our industry’s most talented young actors, this package had everything we were looking for that made us excited and eager to jump on board. Voyagers is a unique opportunity to present an elevated horror film with deep and complex morality themes.”
