quietearth [Celluloid 02.15.12] France scifi noir western



UPDATED: Thanks to reader Umberto we have a video of concept art.

You read that right. Gabe Ibanez whose excellent Hierro screened at Cannes Critics Week 2009 is hard at work on his next which Banderas will both be starring in and producing. A "scifi film noir with a western influence", the film has a budget of $30 million and a start date some time at the end of summer. Variety originally reported Spanish Vertice 360 would be involved, but they've dropped out leaving Green Moon and Quinta Communications.


We don't have an official synopsis, but we have a general description and a logline. To boot, we also have a piece of concept art.

Automata is an epic futuristic vision of a human civilization finally overtaken by artificial intelligence, as the Earth's ecosystem verges on collapse. It tracks an insurance agent for robotics corp. ROC, who investigates a seemingly routine case of robot manipulation.

Logline:
Jacq Vaucan, an insurance agent of ROC robotics corporation, routinely investigates the case of manipulating a robot. What he discovers will have profound consequences for the future of humanity.





Sorry folks, we were asked to remove the video.

The embedded video seems to be blank with occasional glitch noises. Not sure what's happened.
