Tom Payne has starred in film and television roles for years now, from Waterloo Road and Wuthering Heights to My Funny Valentine and The Physician – he’s taken on a multitude of roles and excelled at each of them. He currently stars as Jesus in AMC’s The Walking Dead and in 2017, he’ll be embracing a new character in Terra Mater Films MindGamers.
The film centers around a group of exceptional students who, after creating a wireless network with the ability to link human minds, find themselves in the middle of an unexpected experiment. The network, originally built with the intention of bringing equality and freedom intellectually, seems to have been created with a more sinister plan in mind. Unfortunately for the students, it’s only after they’ve taken things too far that they discover the hidden agenda.
The trailer for MindGamers was just released and you can see the excitement and joy of the students begin to turn into fear and turmoil as greed and secrets threaten what they’d worked so hard to create. As you follow the storyline in the two-minute trailer, you’re faced with an interesting question. While the film is coined a SciFi Thriller, is it possible that we’re already existing in a world where promises of freedom and equality are only hiding darker motives that stand to separate us further?
The synopsis for MindGamers reads as follows.
“In MindGamers, a group of brilliant young students make a scientific breakthrough: the creation of a wireless neural network, connected via a quantum computer and capable of linking human minds. Transferring motor-skills from one brain to another, they engender the first human shareware. Freely spreading this technology, they see it as a step towards a new equality and intellectual freedom. But they soon discover that they themselves are part of a much greater and more sinister experiment, as dark forces emerge and threaten to subvert this technology into a means of mass control.”
MindGamers will premiere in March of 2017 and until then you can keep up to date with the film on the interactive website, here.
