Queensbury Pictures, the recently launched Chicago- and London-based production company, has signed Jacob Gentry (The Signal) to direct Broadcast Signal Intrusion, set to shoot in Chicago later this year, Bloody Disgusting learned out of Cannes.

Check this out: Broadcast Signal Intrusion is being described as “an unsettling journey into our collective technological nightmares” that’s “part-Zodiac and part-Lost Highway by way of Aphex Twin” and “a nerve-shredding horror film that confronts our deepest, darkest fears of both man and machine.”

“While logging tapes of decades-old TV broadcasts, videographer James comes across a surreal and disturbing clip of what appears to be an imprisoned android. James believes it’s the product of a mysterious broadcast signal hacking, and his discovery takes a sinister turn when he tracks down similar broadcast intrusions that send him on an obsessive mission. Now James must confront two very real possibilities: that the videos may be clues to a crime beyond all comprehension, and that whoever was behind them may be very aware that James is coming uncomfortably close to the truth.”

In keeping with Queensbury’s “produced in Chicago” ethos, the story is loosely inspired by actual broadcast interruptions that occurred in the city in the late 1980s.

Broadcast Signal Intrusion is based on a feature script developed by Queensbury. It was written by Tim Woodall and Phil Drinkwater, a British writing duo who submitted the screenplay through New Blood, an initiative set up and run by Queensbury partner Giles Edwards since 2017 in partnership with the U.K.’s premier genre event Frightfest.
Greg Newman, Nicola Goelzhaeuser and Giles Edwards are producing for Queensbury. Casting on the film will be announced soon.
