“Spores” revolves around a remote pharmaceutical lab where an infected test subject violently murders research scientists working on the vaccine for a lethal spore-born virus; those infected transform into psychotic killing machines.

Jason Dudek is writing and directing. Strasburg is producing.

The film is set to begin principal photography this June and is the first of three genre pictures that StudioLine will be producing. StudioLine and AWP first came to work with one another on the film “Legacy” written and directed by Dudek.
