Alec Baldwin (The Departed, Mission: Impossible 5, Blue Jasmine) and Danny Glover (Lethal Weapon, series, Saw, The Color Purple) headline the cast of Andron - a sci-fi, action adventure movie from AMBI Pictures Group, the movie development, finance, production and distribution group owned and run by Andrea Iervolino and Lady Monika Bacardi.
Iervolino and Lady Bacardi are financing and producing the film and AMBI's international sales arm, AMBI Distribution, is handling worldwide sales.
Franceso Cinquemani wrote the screenplay and is directing the film, marking his feature directorial debut.
Principal photography will commence this month in Malta, in collaboration with the Malta Film Commission, and in Italy.
The movie begins when a group of young men and women awake in a dark, claustrophobic maze. They don't remember who they are or how they got stuck in the black labyrinth of Andron. The group must learn to decipher codes, understand the signals, and beat the tests in this mysterious and bizarre place. Out of necessity they struggle to form a bond to survive, while the outside of the world watches and wages on their fate.
Baldwin and Glover will be supported by a cast that includes Michelle Ryan (EastEnders, Cashback), Skin (lead singer from UK band Skunk Anansie), Jon Kortajarena (A Single Man), Gale Harold (Queer as Folk) and Leo Howard (G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Conan the Barbarian).
Here's what producer Andrea Iervolino had to say about the casting in a brief statement.
"The story of Andron is enough to excite sci-fi fans worldwide but when you add actors like Alec Baldwin and Danny Glover, the meter rises even higher and audiences expect something very special, which is what we plan to deliver. We're very excited to add this film to our production slate and eager to get to work on a film we believe has great breakout potential."
