Director Bryan Singer (Trick ‘r Treat) has signed on to produce a horror thriller series for Warner Bros. The series is entitled “H+” and Warner Bros. is describing the film as a “futuristic survival tale.” This is a story set nine years in the future, where everyone has constant access to the internet through implanted microchips and access to killer viruses. How is that for a nightmare? This series will likely be two and a half hours in length, with distribution through digital formats e.g. video-on-demand, cable. More details are coming along on this latest production, with a full synopsis below.
The synopsis for “H+” is here:
“‘H+’ takes viewers on an episodic two-and-a-half hour, apocalyptic journey into the future where technology has gone horrifically wrong. In 2019, 33% of the world’s population uses a radical new piece of technology – an implanted computer system called H +. This allows a person’s mind and nervous system to be connected to the Internet 24 hours a day.
But that same year, a mysterious and vicious computer virus is released, and within seconds millions of people have died — leading to radical changes to the political and social landscape of the planet” (Warner).
Director: Stewart Hendler.
Writers: John Cabrera and Cosimo de Tommaso
Producers: Bryan Singer and Lance Sloane.
*H + is currently in pre-production and shooting expected to commence by the end of the year (2010).
