Morgan Freeman-Josh Hutcherson starrer '57 Seconds' first look out
Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman and Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games) are all set to lead the upcoming sci-fi thriller 57 Seconds. The film, directed by Rusty Cundieff and written by Macon Blair, takes place in a world revolving around big pharma and technology. 57 Seconds is based on a popular story, titled Fallen Angel, by British author EC Tubbs. Read on for more details.
The film narrates the life of a tech blogger, Franklin Fausti (Hutcherson), who lands a big interview with Anton Burrell (Freeman), a renowned tech guru. Incidentally, Fausti successfully thwarts an attack that was targeted at the visionary technophile. In the aftermath of the attack, however, Fausti finds a strange ring that belongs to Burrell. He soon learns what the ring is capable of—time travel!
The mystery ring, which allows the wearer to go 57 seconds into the past, is now in the possession of Fausti. With Burrell's help, Fausti is determined to get his revenge and decides to take down the pharmaceutical company that was responsible for her sister's death. However, he gets caught in a twisted series of events that put his destiny and more at stake.
In addition to the lead actors Freeman and Hutcherson, the cast of 57 Seconds also features actors Lovie Simone (Selah & the Spades and The Craft: Legacy), Greg Germann (Once Upon a Time), and Bevin Bru (Batwoman and Ramy).
