Minds Eye Entertainment, in association with Bridgegate Pictures and VMI Worldwide, have announced that principal photography for the sci-fi, action, thriller, “The Recall,” has commenced in British Columbia, Canada.

Mauro Borrelli directs a screenplay by Reggie Keyohara III and Sam Acton. Borelli is a former collaborator of director Tim Burton and the film illustrator for blockbuster films such as “Pirates of the Caribbean” and “Captain America.”

“The Recall” stars RJ Mitte, Jedidiah Goodacre, Niko Pepaj, Laura Maria Bilgeri, Hannah Rose May and Wesley Snipes as “The Hunter.”

Kevin Dewalt, CEO of Minds Eye Entertainment, made the announcement today.



“I am thrilled to collaborate with the team from Bridgegate Pictures and VMI Worldwide to bring the script “The Recall” to life,” said Dewalt. “We couldn’t be more proud to work with a young cast and the talented Wesley Snipes to create a film that sci-fi audiences will be excited to see.”

In “The Recall,” when five friends vacation at a remote lake house, they expect nothing less than a good time, unaware that planet Earth is under an alien invasion and mass-abduction.

“The Recall” will also be shot for the new Barco Escape three-screen, panoramic theatrical format, which fully surrounds audiences and offers the ultimate immersive cinema experience. Portions of the films will also be shot in Virtual Reality.

Minds Eye International has North American distribution rights to “The Recall,” while VMI Worldwide has international rights.

“The Recall” will be produced by Kevin Dewalt and Danielle Masters, and will be executive produced by Guy Griffithe, Andre Relis, Frank White, and Isabella Ragona.

“The Recall” is the first film of a six-picture production slate announced by the companies at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival.

  1. I’m sorry to see Wesley still having to fight his way back to the position he once had in film. I thought he was doing great in the now cancelled series “The Player”; that show actually had a unique angle to it. This “Recall” movie sounds like it will be a very limited release. The only thing halfway intriguing to me about it–from a technical standpoint–is that it’s being designed with the same wraparound panoramic concept from the 1950s.
