Comics – Surrogates movie news.

April 4, 2008

Ving Rhames and Rosamund Pike have joined Bruce Willis and Radha Mitchell in the sci-fi thriller The Surrogates  for Disney.

Jonathan Mostow is directing the film based on the graphic novel by Robert Venditti and artist Brett Weldele of Top Shelf Comix. Michael Ferris and John Brancato (the Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines duo) wrote the script.

Mandeville Film’s David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman are producing along with Max Handelman and Elizabeth Banks.

Ned Vaughn was also previously cast in the film, which is set in the future where humans live risk-free lives through robot surrogates that are eternally young, perfect-looking versions of themselves.

Rhames plays a charismatic cult figure who disdains the use of surrogates and tries to lead an uprising against the “new world order.”

Mitchell plays the professional partner of Willis’ character, a cop that through his surrogate investigates the murders of others’ surrogates.

Pike plays his wife.

Production is set to begin in late April on the film, which will be released through Touchstone.

Shooting is scheduled to start on April 28 in Boston for a November 20, 2009 release.
