True Skin

H1

Warner Bros. has the rights to Stephan Zloetescu’s mesmerizing short sci-fi film True Skin and will turn the project into a full feature. Zloetescu, who wrote and directed the original short, is set to direct this version as well, and Chris Sewall, who produced the short, will be a co-producer on the feature, too. The story is set in a Blade Runner-esque world where everyone purchases robotic body parts and shuns “naturals,” following a man who implants a dangerous prototype into his head and goes on the run from those who want it back. Watch!
