Bella Thorne Will Star in THE UNCANNY

Deadline reports that Bella Thorne has been tapped to star in "The Uncanny," an upcoming post-apocalyptic thriller.

Mitzi Peirone directs. Peirone wrote the script with Chaya Doswell.

The Uncanny presents a future where every citizen is implanted with a chip capable of controlling everything from emotions to directions, until a routine update backfires, causing a cyber apocalypse. Wiping out most of humanity, five strangers miraculously survive, now forced to live hidden in a bunker with their implants ripped from their spines. They were the few lucky enough to survive - until Scarlet (Thorne) begins to suspect they were not saved at all, or by chance.

"The story offers a timely and compelling glimpse into human's dependence on technology and the greater evils of such addiction" says Courtney Shepard. "We're excited to have Bella on board for such a strong female-led team. I have no doubt Mitzi will craft something visually and thematically stunning."

Thorne is an actor who will make her feature directorial debut on another upcoming thriller.
