BERLIN — K5 Intl. has secured the rights to futuristic action sci-fi pic “VICE,” starring Bruce Willis. K5 will be pre-selling at Berlin’s European Film Market.

Pic also toplines Ambyr Childers (“The Master,” Showtime’s “Ray Donovan”), and Thomas Jane (“The Mist,” HBO’s “Hung”). It is set to be directed by Brian A. Miller (“The Prince,” “House of the Rising Sun”), and was penned by Andre Fabrizio and Jeremy Passmore (“The Prince,” upcoming “San Andreas,” starring Dwayne Johnson). It begins shooting in Alabama in March.

“VICE” is set on a futuristic resort where synthetic humans serve the rich, who live out their darkest fantasies. The humanoids are reset every night by the resort’s owner Julian (Willis), but one female employee Kelly (Childers) malfunctions and retains every terrifying memory. Realizing what the tourists are doing to the staff members, she sets out to exact revenge.

“VICE” will be produced by Randall Emmett and George Furla of Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films, and Adam Goldworm, and executive produced by K5’s Oliver Simon and Daniel Baur, alongside Grindstone Entertainment’s Barry Brooker and Stan Wertlieb. Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films, whose box-office hit “Lone Survivor” has taken more than $100 million in the U.S., is financing the pic, alongside K5 Media Capital.
