Principal photography wrapped today in California on post-apocalyptic thriller “Future World”, produced by Andrea Iervolino and Monika Bacardi of AMBI Group and directed by James Franco and Bruce Cheung, starring Milla Jovovich, Lucy Liu, Method Man, Suki Waterhouse, Snoop Dogg, Margarita Levieva, Jeffrey Wahlberg and Franco.
The movie is set in the barren landscape of a post-apocalyptic world, where a young Prince from the Oasis (one of the last known safe-havens) and a robot named Ash go on a daring journey of self-discovery – one that winds through the violent and desolate world of the Wastelands.
Bruce Cheung and Jay Davis wrote the screenplay, from an original story by Franco. Producers are Andrea Iervolino, Monika Bacardi, Vince Jolivette and Jay Davis.
AMBI Group, the movie development, finance, production and distribution group owned and run by Andrea Iervolino and Monika Bacardi, financed the film in association with the Fyzz Facility and Black Sparrow. AMBI Distribution, the worldwide sales arm of the AMBI Group, is handling global sales.
