Olivia Munn to Star in Sci-Fi Action Thriller REPLAY

Olivia Munn to Star in Sci-Fi Thriller REPLAY
Olivia Munn ("X-Men: Apocalypse") has signed on to star in the sci-fi action thriller "Replay". The film is being showcased on the agency platform of the virtual Cannes market.

The film tells the story of Erin Staffer (Munn), whose husband is kidnapped and murdered. Armed only with illegal, bleeding-edge tech and a desperate plan, Erin must do everything in her power to change the past and save him.

The filmmakers describe the project as being similar to "John Wick" and "The Raid" in terms of its close-quarter action scenes, and "The Terminator" for its sci-fi storytelling.

Currently in pre-production, the film is written and directed by Jimmy Loweree ("Abscence) and produced by Munn, Ethan Erwin and Hal Sadoff, while Robert Bell is co-producing.

Brian O'Shea, CEO of The Exchange, had this to say about the project:
"We are very excited to announce Olivia Munn's attachment to Replay. She not only is a wonderful actress, but also well known to our buyers, which will help make this strong genre project very popular during the market".

Erwin from Dark Castle also praised Munn and Loweree:
"Audiences are going to witness the birth of the next great action star with Olivia Munn in this film. And our director, Jimmy Loweree, is an incredible young filmmaker, whose vision for this movie is going to blow people away."

Munn recently starred in the rom-com "Love Wedding Repeat". She recently finished work on the dramas "Violet" and "The Getaway", which are both in post-production.
