Travis Fimmel to Star in Sci-Fi Thriller Zone 414


Highland Film Group has announced today that Travis Fimmel (Vikings, Warcraft) has signed on to star in Andrew Baird’s feature film directorial debut Zone 414. From a script penned by Bryan Edward Hill, the sci-fi thriller will be produced by Baird, 23ten’s Martin Brennan, source | management + production’s Jib Polhemus, and Deborah Shaw-Kolar with executive producers Mark Huffam and Bryan Edward Hill.

Set in the near future, Zone 414 is a colony of state-of-the-art humanoid robots. When its creator’s daughter goes missing, he hires private investigator David Carmichael (Fimmel), to bring her home. David teams up with Jane, a highly advanced and self-aware A.I., to track down the missing daughter. Moving through the dangerous iron jungle, they rapidly piece together the mystery, uncovering a crime that leads them to question the origins of Zone 414 and the true purpose behind the “City of Robots.” Principal photography is set to begin in November.

Best known for his role as Ragnar Lothbrok in the History Channel’s critically-acclaimed Vikings, Fimmel is currently in production on TNT’s Raised by Wolves, directed by Ridley Scott and in post-production on Charlie Day’s El Tonto, in which he stars alongside Kate Beckinsale, Jason Sudeikis, Adrien Brody, Jillian Bell, Common, Ken Jeong and John Malkovich.

Fimmel’s previous credits include a lead role in Universal Picture’s Warcraft, alongside Paula Patton, Ben Foster and Dominic Cooper, which grossed $439 million worldwide; A&E’s The Beast alongside Patrick Swayze; A24’s Lean on Pete alongside Charlie Plummer, Chloe Sevigny and Steve Buscemi; and Sony Pictures Classics’ Maggie’s Plan with Greta Gerwig, Ethan Hawke and Julianne Moore.

Highland Film Group is handling worldwide sales, which will launch at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival.
