Override, a sci-fi thriller written and directed by Richard Colton, was released in the United States in April (you can get a copy at THIS LINK), but it will not be available in the UK until September 6th on digital and DVD. We got our hands on a trailer for the film ahead of its UK release, which you can see in the embed above.
The film stars Jess Impiazzi, Luke Goss, Dean Cain, Kimberly Wyatt, and Charlie Clapam and is described as a cross between The Truman Show and Westworld. The following is a synopsis:
In 2040, a female humanoid A.I. is hacked by her husband and forced to kidnap the U.S. vice president’s son and execute him on live television.
Ria (Impiazzi) is a young woman who finds herself reliving the same day over and over. Each day Ria wakes up to her normal routine but finds a different person playing her husband ‘Jack’ by her side. Why? Because Ria is actually the star of her own reality show A DAY WITH RIA’. Each husband is a contestant, there to show the world what they are made of. Ria re-lives her perfect 1950’s housewife day over and over again, until one day her routine becomes tiresome and Ria holds the current Jack (Clapham) to ransom. This Jack also happens to be the Vice President (Cain) of the USA’s son. These dramatic turns of events mean the public discover the true massive conspiracy behind Ria, her husband(s) and one man’s (Goss) secret vendetta against the Vice President.
Ria, which stands for Reality Interface Android, was the previous title of the film.
Override appears to be a lot of fun, and I like what we have seen of Impiazzi’s performance. She is best known for her roles in the reality shows Ex on the Beach and Celebrity Big Brother, but she has also appeared in a number of genre films, including Serial Kaller, The Seven, and The Tombs.
