Actor Pierce Brosnan will star in Brett Martys feature-film adaptation of “Youth”, adapted from Martys short film of the same name. The sci-fi thriller will also mark Marty’s feature directorial debut.
Based on the 2016 short film, the project is set in a future not far from now, reports hollywoodreporter.com.
Brosnan, 67, will be seen as an engineer, who is about to retire at age 70, when his company pays him to undergo a procedure called “Renewal” to rewind his body’s biological clock. The process goes wrong, with his aging accelerating rapidly, and that’s when he attempts a more dangerous treatment.
Marty co-wrote the screenplay with Josh Izenberg and Amelia Whitcomb. Jib Polhemus, Paul Schiff and Martin Brennan will produce, with Laura Bickford and Hannah Leader executive producing the project.
