The near future world of Hotel Artemis depicts a secret Los Angeles hospital established exclusively for criminals and director Drew Pearce is poised to present this intriguing thriller starting on June 8.
For the first-time director, landing such acting luminaries as the Academy Award-winning Jodie Foster, Guardians of the Galaxy's Dave Bautista and Jurassic Park's Jeff Goldblum has been a phenomenal stroke of good timing and plain old-fashioned luck.
Exactly how he was able to lure Foster out of retirement is something Pearce revealed to SYFY WIRE in our extended coverage of the dystopian indie flick which has all the ingredients for an early summer sleeper at the box office.
Listen in as the newbie filmmaker discusses his fortunate casting experience, the vibrancy of the characters, the unusual concept of his screenplay, seeing this talented gang of A-list performers bring the strange sci-fi story to life, and the potential for a sequel.
Hotel Artemis opens its doors on June 8.
