Robbie Amell and Rachael Taylor, known to fanboys for their work on comic book shows The Flash and Jessica Jones respectively, have teamed up to star in Arq, a sci-fi thriller that will be released by Netflix.
Lost City and XYZ Films are producing the low-budget movie which was written and being directed by Tony Elliott. Elliott knows a thing or two about sci-fi drama having been a story editor and writer on BBC America’s acclaimed show, Orphan Black.
Arq is a post-apocalyptic thriller set in the near future when the oil supply has run dry.Trapped in a house and surrounded by a gang of mysterious masked intruders, an engineer (Amell) must protect a technology that could deliver unlimited energy and end the wars that have consumed the world. The only problem is that the technology has created a time loop that condemns him and his friends all to relive the same day over and over.
The movie is due to begin shooting this winter in Toronto.
