After a successful festival run that included showings at Fantasia International Film Festival (Montreal), Frightfest (Great Britain), the Quebec City Film Festival, and Fantasy Filmfest (Germany), the science fiction Radius will be released in theaters toward the end of November, which is a delayed release. While it is good news for such an original story, Filmoption International and EMA Films have sadly only announced the release for the Canadian province of Quebec.
Written and directed by Caroline Labrèche and Steeve Léonard, Radius stars Diego Klattenhoff (The Black List, Homeland) and Charlotte Sullivan (Chicago Fire, Rookie Blue).
Liam (Diego Klattenhoff) wakes from a car crash at the bottom of a ditch with no memory of who he is. As he makes his way into town, he discovers that anyone who comes within a 50-foot radius of him dies instantly. Out of options, he tries to live in seclusion to protect others, until one day, his murderous power seems to subside… with the arrival of a woman (Charlotte Sullivan) who says she was in the crash with him. She too is suffering from amnesia and looking for answers. Together they embark on a journey to uncover who they really are…
Radius was co-produced by Anne-Marie Gélinas and Benoit Beaulieu for EMA films and Jean Du Toit by Peripatetic Pictures while RKSS (Turbo Kid), Anouk Whissell, Yoann-Karl Whissell, and François Simard in collaboration with Stéphanie Trépanier served as executive producers. The direction of the photography was carried out by Simon Villeneuve, the visual design by Maryam Decter, Steeve Léonard also served as editor and the music was by Benoît Charest.
