Ballerini to star in sci-fi pic

Shooting begins on 'Omphalos' in summer

Edoardo Ballerini (“Boardwalk Empire,” “The Sopranos”) will topline Gabriel Judet-Weinshel’s sci-fi thriller “Omphalos.”

Shooting’s set to begin in the summer in New York and New Mexico with Judet-Weinshel directing from his own script. Story centers on a down-on-his-luck detective forced to investigate his own murder, only to discover multiple versions of himself — not all of them friendly.

Isen Robbins and Aimee Schoof of Red Giant Media will produce with Ballerini while Christian Cooper exec produces. Robbins and Schoof teamed on “XX/XY,” “Brother to Brother” and “Alphabet Killer.”

Ballerini starred in “Dinner Rush” and will star in “No God, No Master.”
