‘Alternate’: Rhys Wakefield To Star In Oz Sci-Fi Horror, Endeavor Content Handling North America

Exclusive: Rhys Wakefield (The Purge) has been set to star in Australian sci-fi horror Alternate, which is due to get underway in Adelaide, Australia, in early 2021.

Writer-director Anthony Garland’s feature debut will be produced by Lady A Pictures’ Ali Mueller (Challenger) and Sla Films’ Anna Vincent (I Am Mother). Kindred Spirit’s Anita Gou (The Farewell) will executive-produce.

Endeavor Content has come aboard to handle North American rights with Rialto Distribution releasing in Australia and New Zealand. Screen Australia is providing major production support with additional backing from the South Australian Film Corporation.

Set in a high-rise office building, the film will follow an overworked young executive (Wakefield) who goes back in time four hours to save his girlfriend from being killed.

The film is inspired by Garland’s proof of concept short Snake which follows a girl working late one night who gets stuck in a time loop.
