The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Olivia Munn will be producing and starring as the lead in the upcoming thriller Replay.
Being pitched by the filmmakers on the project to having similarities to John Wick and The Raid in terms of close-quarter action scenes, as well as a hint of The Terminator for its sci-fi storytelling, Replay will focus on Erin Staffer, whose husband is kidnapped and murdered. Armed only with illegal, bleeding-edge tech and a desperate plan, Erin must do everything in her power to change the past and save him.
The film is written and directed by Jimmy Loweree, with Munn serving as producer alongside Ethan Erwin and Hal Sadoff of Dark Castle Entertainment. Robert Bell of Dark Castle will be co-producing.
Brian O’Shea, CEO of The Exchange, released a statement saying:
We are very excited to announce Olivia Munn’s attachment to Replay. She not only is a wonderful actress, but also well known to our buyers, which will help make this strong genre project very popular during the market.
Dark Castle’s Ethan Erwin added:
Audiences are going to witness the birth of the next great action star with Olivia Munn in this film. And our director, Jimmy Loweree, is an incredible young filmmaker, whose vision for this movie is going to blow people away.
The Exchange will be handling international sales at the upcoming Cannes virtual market.
