CORONA, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 30, 2016) - Bridgegate Pictures (OTC PINK: BBGP), in association with Minds Eye Entertainment and VMI Worldwide, proudly announce that Nicolas Cage (Snowden, Dog Eat Dog) will star in the action/sci-fi film, THE HUMANITY BUREAU. Rob King (Something More) is set to direct with principal photography commencing this week in British Columbia in Canada. Sarah Lind (Wolfcop), Jakob Davies (If I Stay) and Hugh Dillon (Assault on Precinct 13) have also joined the cast. Kevin Dewalt, CEO of Minds Eye Entertainment, made the announcement today.
"We're extremely excited to work with the incomparable Nicolas Cage on this project," said Dewalt. "We're certain that THE HUMANITY BUREAU will be a hit with his legions of followers."
The year is 2030. Global warming has turned parts of the American Midwest into a desert. In its attempt to take hold of the economic recession, a government agency called The Humanity Bureau exiles members of society deemed unproductive and banishes them to a colony known as New Eden.
An ambitious and impartial caseworker Noah Kross (Cage) investigates a case appealed by a single mother (Lind) and her son (Davies). Knowing the unjust fate of the innocent boy, Kross sets off to save the lives of the mother and child duo and to expose the truth about The Humanity Bureau's secrets once and for all.
THE HUMANITY BUREAU is the second in Bridgegate Pictures scheduled six-picture slate. Also filmed in British Columbia, THE RECALL, starring Wesley Snipes, just finished production.
THE HUMANITY BUREAU will be shot with the new Barco Escape multi-screen, panoramic movie format, offering the ultimate immersive cinema experience that fully surrounds the viewer in the movie experience. Portions of the films will also be shot in Virtual Reality.
Minds Eye International has North American distribution rights to THE HUMANITY BUREAU, while VMI Worldwide has international rights. THE HUMANITY BUREAU will be produced by Kevin Dewalt (Forsaken, The Tall Man) Danielle Masters (Forsaken, Wolfcop), and Kelly-Rae Buchan. It will be executive produced by Wayne Marc Godfrey (Cake), Guy Griffithe (American Justice), Robert Jones (The Usual Suspects), Andre Relis (Swing State) and Frank White (The Tall Man).
