What a day this has been for Jamie news! Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we have been treated to our very first look at Jamie and Anthony Mackie in the upcoming film Synchronic which was filmed in New Orleans late last year. Both Justin and Aaron had some lovely words to say about their performances and what it was like to work alongside them

Two of the most exciting new filmmakers operating in the horror/science fiction/thriller space are writer-directors Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, whose credits include 2014’s Lovecraftian love story Spring and last year’s commune-set mindbender, The Endless. Their latest film is called Synchronic and stars Anthony Mackie and Jamie Dornan. The actors play two New Orleans paramedics who encounter a series of horrific deaths linked to a designer drug and whose friendship and families are ripped apart by the mysterious pill’s bizarre effects.

“In a movie with a lot of mysteries to be solved, Anthony and Jamie gave two heartbreaking, funny, beautifully human performances that keep it all feeling natural,” Benson and Moorhead tell EW, via email. “And they were lovely to work with throughout, which for two indie film directors stepping into a larger puzzle-box of a movie and trying to keep it personal, frightening, and exciting, was a wonderful gift.”

Captain America: Civil War star Anthony Mackie and A Private War star Jamie Dornan are in talks to topline sci-fi thriller Synchronic from The Endless directors Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead.

The pair will play two New Orleans paramedics, whose lives are ripped apart after encountering a series of horrific deaths linked to a designer drug with bizarre, otherworldly effects.

The film is produced by David Lawson Jr., who produced The Endless, along with Benson and Moorhead for Rustic Films. The script is written by Benson. XYZ Films is handling international sales, with XYZ co-repping domestic rights with UTA.

Benson and Moorhead said, “Being huge fans of the nuanced, brilliant work of Anthony and Jamie, this is a filmmaker’s wildest dream come true. They each possess an extraordinary depth of personal experiences, humor, and pathos that brings a massive wellspring of humanity to the battle-scarred partnership being portrayed. We’ve found the perfect collaborators to tell a bold, frightening, heartstring-tugging story.”
