The unstoppable team of husband and wife, Michael Biehn and Jennifer Blanc Biehn have just announced their latest film. With horrors like the Hidden in the Woods remake, The Girl, The Victim and The Farm among their top quality resume, the production team are now looking to see Michael Biehn return to the genre that made him a star, sci-fi.
Here is the official press release for Fembot, courtesy of PRWEB, and it sounds rather intriguing!
Blanc-Biehn Productions will go into production on Fembot, which will see a release date in the fall of 2015. Biehns’ first robot movie since the ‘Terminator’ and Blancs’ first superhuman story since ‘Dark Angel’ which both had worked on with James Cameron. Now the couple will bring a robot film to the fans from the newly successful Blanc-Biehn Productions.
While in Vienna, at the Film Ball the couple met host Martin Richard Kristek, who made a lasting impression on Biehn with his charisma as a European actor and DJ as well as his message and views on the subject of renewable energy. Martin Kristek, owner and CEO of Care-Energy an ESCO, supplies over 380,000 customers in Germany with renewable, sustainable energy. His company’s work creates the greatest possible independence of energy at socially acceptable prices. The social tariff and the run from a social point infrastructure projects in the Philippines and Ghana show the soul of the company. Currently, Martin Kristek is set to internationalize his energy service company.
“I am so excited to work with Martin on this project , I found him to be one of the most interesting, smart, and talented people I have met in a long time” says Biehn.
“We think Kristek will be a wonderful character in this film” added Jennifer Blanc-Biehn.
The film will star Michael Biehn (Terminator, Aliens, The Victim, The Divide) and Jennifer Blanc-Biehn ( Everly, Wrong Cops,The Victim, Dark Angel) and introduces Martin Richard Kristek to Hollywood (in the role of a solar energy provider working with the inventor of the ‘Fembot). Kristek will have a supporting role in this film which will begin filming this July in Hollywood. More cast announced as of April 2014.
‘Fembot’ will be directed by editor Vance Crofoot and written by Staci Layne Wilson.
Imagine a world in the not-too-distant future in which your every whim and desire can be fulfilled by a beautiful, charming, and sexually adventurous female robot. Thanks to ingenious scientific advances, and potency provided by benevolent green energy eco-power plants, these “Fembots” are a dream come true. She’s lifelike, responsive, warm, and soft to the touch — she even smells like cotton candy. What man wouldn’t want one?
Wealthy entrepreneur Zayden Beckett (Michael Biehn) can’t wait to invest… both professionally, and personally. Beckett test-drives a few Fembot models before he settles on Arla, the most intelligent of the lot, specially programmed just for him. Unfortunately, the devious inventor of the Fembot has cut corners with Arla, using a different, inferior energy source. She develops a mind of her own, and a thought-process which allows for jealousy. When Beckett begins to fall in love with a real woman, Arla goes on the attack.
The ‘Fembot’ plot revolves around a man seeking perfection who’s pretty sure to have finally found what he’s been looking for in the shape of a Fembot – a female robot. A standard Hollywood fairy tale? Maybe at first glance – but if you look closer the plot holds more than meets the eye. It works on many levels, has a profound meaning, alludes ironically and entertaining to the absurdities of this artificial world around us a world we created in the last decade. A world filled with make-believe friendships, made up relationships, and wannabe-realities only ringing true in a pixelated universe. So’ Fembot’ actually serves as a warning, a wake-up call for the viewer: Beware of the temptations of the virtual reality because in the end you might find yourself in a real world that’s more fiction than fact, where nothing is real anymore. In the truest sense of the word. And who’s gonna want that to happen? Nobody – that’s who!
Fembot is a thrilling and erotic, energy conscious, sci-fi suspense film. Production begins in July 2014 with plans to premiere in February 2015.
