I’m sure there are a few people out there who wouldn’t mind waking up as Ryan Reynolds tomorrow, but it looks like Ben Kingsley is actually going to do it in Self/Less, and if you want to see how, take a look at the trailer below.
Based on an script by Alex and David Pastor (who wrote and directed the 2009 horror Carriers), the film is about a wealthy old man (Kingsley) who pays to have his mind transplanted into a younger body (Reynolds) after he realises that is dying. In a very bad turn of luck, he soon realises that the body he’s taken over is a murder victim, and the body’s killers aren’t happy to see him walking around again. The hero is then forced to go on the run and work out who’s trying to kill him.
Tarsem Singh directs the film, which should be out later this year. [Read more…]
