Four years into quarantine the virus has changed and so have we…
In the terrifying thriller Songbird, the COVID-23 virus has mutated and the world is in its fourth year of lockdown. Infected Americans are ripped from their homes and forced into quarantine camps known as Q-Zones, from which there is no escape, as a few brave souls fight back against the forces of oppression.
Amid this dystopian landscape, a fearless courier, Nico (KJ Apa), who’s immune to the deadly pathogen, finds hope and love with Sara (Sofia Carson), though her lockdown prohibits them from physical contact.
When Sara is believed to have become infected, Nico races desperately across the barren streets of Los Angeles in search of the only thing that can save her from imprisonment… or worse.
The first feature film to be made during COVID-19 in Los Angeles, and about the pandemic itself, Songbird also stars Bradley Whitford and Demi Moore as a wealthy couple who may hold the key to Nico’s mission; and Alexandra Daddario as a singer enmeshed in a messy and forbidden affair.
Paul Walter Hauser plays a disabled veteran whose best friend — a drone named Max — is his eyes and ears to a world that has left him behind; Craig Robinson is Nico’s boss; and Peter Stormare plays the corrupt head of the city’s “sanitation” department, which seizes those infected and transports them to the Q-Zone.
“This year has irrevocably changed the way people interact with each other and their surroundings, and the reverberations will be profound; with all of 2020 underlying every frame of the movie, Songbird will be relevant, moving, and sentimental as a love story, while also scary as hell,” said Adam Fogelson, chairman of STXfilms Motion Picture Group, and Adam Goodman and Andrew Sugerman of Invisible Narratives.
“We have been longtime fans and friends of many of the creative team behind Songbird. We are looking forward to working with Michael, Adam, Andrew, and the teams at Invisible Narratives and Catchlight Films, who have been behind some of the best recent films that marry realistic science fiction and emotional storylines in an effective and terrifying way.”
“Songbird is a story of hope in the midst of tragedy that we felt a pressing need to tell as we all live through the single greatest health crisis of our lifetimes. Everyone at STX understands and appreciates this film deep in their core,” added Goodman and Sugerman.
“Their commitment to Songbird has assured us that we are in the best possible hands, and we’re excited to be working with them on this adventure.”
