Christopher Webster [Celluloid 10.29.13] Australia scifi action thriller

Infini, an original sci-fi thriller from Australian director Shane Abbess, starts shooting in Sydney on Monday. Abbess made a stir back in 2007 with Gabriel, the stylish gothic actioner about an archangel who fights to bring light back to purgatory. Since then, the director has been attached to some high profile projects including Source Code, which ended up being directed by Duncan Jones.

Scripted by Abbess and Brian Cachia, the independently financed film is about on a search and rescue team sent into deep space to retrieve a stranded soldier.

Abbess recently said that "Infini is my response to the types of films I’m not enjoying right now. It's risky and bold in both narrative and themes and I really like that. We either hit this one out of the park or die on our knees in the dirt. Both are very real options. There are no safe runs here. That makes this journey worth it."

Bring it on.

The full plot sees the search and rescue team using slipstream technology to transport themselves to mining station Infini, where even space and time itself are a threat. Their mission is to save the lone survivor of a freak accident before quarantining a contaminated payload, a lethal biological weapon, set to arrive back on earth within the hour.

The cast includes Daniel MacPherson, Grace Huang, Luke Hemsworth, Kevin Copeland, Dwaine Stevenson, Harry Pavlidis, Louisa Mignone, Tess Haubrich, Bren Foster and Luke Ford.
