DEADLINE ANNOUNCES BANKS ATTACHMENT TO 'STREET RAT ALLIE'
Director Sophia Banks, currently in post-production on her debut feature Black Site with Michelle Monaghan, Jason Clarke and Jai Courtney, is next teaming up with Hacksaw Ridge producers Bill Mechanic, Paul Currie and Rick Nicita on female survival movie Street Rat Allie.
The film will follow Allie, who is presented with a ticket to escape her post-apocalyptic city, which is sealed off by a dome. She and her ‘Street Rats,’ a pack of Dickensian girls who depend on each other for survival, become the targets of every criminal — human or otherwise. Armed with only her wits and a skateboard, she must overcome outsiders and her own conscience in leaving her fellow Street Rats behind.
Bill Mechanic, Paul Currie and Rick Nicita will produce for Cosmos Pictures. The firm is aiming to make a trilogy of films around the IP. Production is slated to start in Australia in 2022. Read More
