CANNES: Sam Neill Joins Cast of Science Thriller ‘DxM’ from Red Bull’s CineMater

Other cast include Tom Payne, Melia Kreiling, Antonia Campbell-Hughes

CANNES — Sam Neill has joined the cast of mind-bending science thriller “DxM,” which is the second project from Red Bull Media House’s recently launched feature film division CineMater.

Other cast include Tom Payne (“The Physician”), Melia Kreiling (“Guardians of the Galaxy”), Antonia Campbell-Hughes (“3096”), Dominique Tipper (“Vampire Academy”), Oliver Stark (“My Hero”) and world champion free-runner Ryan Doyle.

The film, which was co-written and is directed by Andrew Goth (“Gallowwalkers”), is in pre-production, with principal photography set for June and a release early next year. CineMater is pre-selling the project in Cannes.

“DxM” is a high-octane thriller based around the possibilities of quantum mechanics. It centers on a group of young bio-engineers, led by Jaxon (Payne), who realize that quantum theory can be used to transfer motor-skills from one brain to another. Dark forces emerge to subvert this technology and turn it into a means of mass control.

Joanne Reay is the co-writer and producer.

Vienna-based CineMater, which was launched last month, is headed by Walter Koehler. He also leads Red Bull’s Terra Mater Factual Studios, which focuses on TV documentaries.

CineMater’s first production was Gerardo Olivares’ “The Way of the Eagle,” starring Jean Reno. CineMater is showing the first footage from the film to buyers in Cannes, and the first pre-sales will be announced during the festival.
